Since the murder a shrine of remembrance has developed at the scene of his death.

This includes a white painted bike covered in photographs of Alan with his friends and family and messages have been written on the pavement and tied onto lamp posts.

One tribute referred to a ‘perfect, polite young man’ and another observed: ‘I remember your sense of fun and the sweet boy on his bike.’

Other objects have been left as symbols of his life and include pints of milk, packets of Oreos, mini eggs, Doritos, and Haribo sweets.
