A memorial to a teenager who was stabbed to death in Ipswich town centre has been set up where he was fatally wounded one year ago.

Raymond James Quigley, from Wymondham in Norfolk, was attacked in Westgate Street on the afternoon of January 17 last year.

Alfie Hammett, 19, and Joshua Howell, 18, have both been charged with his murder, as well as possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

Hammett, of Larkhill Rise, Rushmere St Andrew, and Howell, of Wellington Street, Ipswich, both deny the charges and are on trial at Ipswich Crown Court.

The tributes from family members and friends are pinned to the railing at the entrance of the street.

One note says: “Our best friend. Our number one! No one will ever compare. Always with us. The love we had was one of a kind.“

Another from his mum and dad says: “On your first anniversary our beautiful boy RJQ you will remain in our minds hearts and souls forever. We are missing you so so much xxx.”

After Mr Quigley's death, his family paid tribute to the medical personnel and the staff of nearby shops who came to his aid after the attack.

Hammett and Howell went on trial in December, with Ipswich Crown Court previously hearing that Mr Quigley suffered a stabbing that went through his chest and two major blood vessels in his heart.

The trial of Hammett and Howell continues.
