In a statement released by Thames Valley Police, Mr Ashraq's family said the teenager was "working really hard to achieve his goals".

They added he used to train his sisters to box and was his mother's "little helper and friend".

"We cannot understand why someone would do such a terrible thing to us. No-one should have to go through this."
