Police have launched a murder investigation after a teenage boy was fatally stabbed in Manchester.

Greater Manchester Police said they were called to Raby Street in the Moss Side area of the city at around 4.15pm on Thursday.

The 17-year-old was taken to hospital but died a short time later. His family has been notified.

Detective Superintendent Simon Moyles said: “This is a tragic and senseless loss of life and our thoughts remain with the victim’s family and friends at this time.

“They will remain at the forefront of our minds as we move forwards in our investigation to track down the person or persons responsible.”

He continued: “Whilst no arrests have been made at this time, I want to assure the local community that a visible police presence will be in place in the local area over the coming days for reassurance and to carry out enquiries as we work tirelessly to apprehend those responsible and bring them to justice.
