Tom Kirwan Trust launched in memory of knife victim

The family of a fatal knife crime victim are launching a charitable trust on the first anniversary of his death.

Tom Kirwan, 23, who worked in a factory in Shropshire, was stabbed near the Uberra Club in Wolverhampton on 8 July.

The trust will raise money for Victim Support and a foundation educating young people about knife crime.

His girlfriend, Jade Elwell told the BBC's Ben Godfrey that knowing no-one is serving time for his murder "means it's even more heartbreaking".
