The parents of a teenager who was stabbed to death in Liverpool have paid tribute to "a hardworking lad who was a credit to himself and his family".

Aaron Morris, 18, was found in Wycliffe Road in Anfield on 12 October. He died a few days later.

A 16-year-old boy from Kensington has been charged with murder.

Aaron's parents, Ian Morris and Ruth Goulding, have urged anyone in the community who knows anything to contact Merseyside Police.

They said: "Aaron was a lovely boy who was loved by everyone who met him.

"He lived for football and was a fanatical Everton fan.

"His death was like a bolt out of the blue and we still have not come to terms with what has happened.

"The past week has been like a bad dream."

'Do right thing'

Aaron was "a great son and a fantastic brother," they said.

They also urged anyone with information to contact police.

Mr Morris said: "We would like to ask the close knit community to assist the investigation so no other family has to go through this."

"You have to do the right thing."

A man, 20, has been arrested and released on police bail.
