A 16-year-old boy has been convicted of murdering a man who died in a UK hospital after being stabbed in the chest.

A judge sitting at Nottingham Crown Court lifted reporting restrictions preventing the media from naming Haris Mohammed after the teenager was found guilty of killing Tom Webb.

Mr Webb, aged 22, was fatally stabbed in Derby on January 19 while on a night out with two friends.

Speaking after the case, Detective Chief Inspector Dave Cox, who led the investigation, said: "This was a tragic case where a young man lost his life as a result of someone carrying a knife.

"Not only is a family grieving for the loss of a young man, another family will now be grieving for a teenager who will undoubtedly spend a long time behind bars.

"Hopefully this verdict will send a strong message to anyone who is thinking of arming themselves with a knife.

"They need to be aware that carrying one is not only a danger to the potential victim but that they too may have to face the serious consequences of their actions if they use it."

Mohammed, of Allenton, Derby, will be sentenced on July 29.
