A teenager who was found dead in Merseyside on New Year's Day has been described as a "kind hearted young man who would do anything for anyone".

Jordan Campbell, 17, was found at a flat in Tickle Avenue, St Helens at about 12:00 GMT following reports of an assault.

When police arrived they saw smoke coming from the property. Tests show he died from a single stab wound.

A family statement said: "His death has left a huge hole in our hearts".

"He loved his family and we loved him back so much in return.

"He was only 17 and we're devastated he never saw his 18th birthday and the chance to be a man," the statement said.

Daniel Joseph Wiltshire, 25, of Newton-le-Willows, Ruben Thomas Hoather, 22, of St Helens and Anthony Mark Wood, 32, of Thatto Heath have been charged with murder.
