Five people were killed in a spate of violence across the country that marred the New Year celebrations.
Bradley Whitfield, 16, was stabbed to death in a street brawl in Leicester and a teenager was knifed after he stepped off a nightbus in London.
Elsewhere a pensioner was burned alive in her home in Northamptonshire and a man collapsed and later died after a fight near the Park Lane Hotel in London.
The grim death toll - five times higher than last year - was completed when a man died from shotgun wounds after admitting himself along with two injured friends.;jsessionid=XIDKBPEHC2Y1NQFIQMFCFFWAVCBQYIV0?xml=/news/2008/01/01/nny301.xml
