In Park Lane, just yards from where he was attacked, dozens of flowers, messages and pictures have been left in memory of Connor.

Among the tributes to the GP receptionist is a boxing glove from Plains Farm ABC who Connor boxed for, as well as a Sunderland AFC shirt.

An appeal fund set up to support Connor's family on the Go Fund Me site has already smashed through its initial target of £8,000 and now stands at over £19,000.
