Tribute to Isle of Man teenager run over by police car
An Isle of Man high school has paid tribute to a former pupil who was run over and killed by a police car in Sheffield.
Jamie Haslett, a Sheffield Hallam University student, was hit by a patrol car on Broad Lane at about 0400 BST on Wednesday.
The 19-year-old was a pupil at St Ninian's High School until 2009.
"To all who knew Jamie, he was a friendly, sociable, well liked and respected young man," the school said.
"As a school prefect, Jamie was an excellent role model to the younger pupils," a school spokesperson said.
He represented the school in every level of sport and had represented the island as part of a football team that competed in California.
He was also a member of Laxey Football Club and Manx Harriers.
Mr Haslett, who was studying sports and business management, was hit by the police car when it was responding to a request by an ambulance crew for help with a separate matter.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
