Dad’s tribute to Great Yarmouth stab victim

The father of Shane Boulton who was left dying from stab wounds in a Great Yarmouth road has paid moving tribute to 'a loving son who would do anything for anybody'.

Ronnie Boulton said his son was a loving father and step-father and the whole family had been left devastated.

Mr Boulton, 21, of Stanley Terrace, Yarmouth, leaves behind a partner with whom he had a son who is two years old.

He was stabbed during a heated row in Stanley Terrace at about 7.45pm on Sunday and attempts at resuscitation by police and ambulance crew were unsuccessful; a post mortem examination later revealed he died of a single stab wound in the heart.

A 17-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man, both local, were arrested on suspicion of murder and were today still being questioned by police.

A 31-year-old local woman was also arrested on suspicion of affray in connection with the incident and later released on police bail.
