An 18-year-old who was stabbed to death in Leeds has been named by police as Jamie Meah.

He died in hospital after being stabbed in the Armley district of the city shortly before 5.30pm on Friday.

West Yorkshire Police said he had been in a taxi with a 16-year-old boy when they were attacked in the street with “bladed weapons” at the junction of Hall Lane and Brentwood Terrace.

The 16-year-old was left with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Detectives arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of murder after an investigation was launched over the weekend.

But he was later released on bail pending continuing inquiries.

A murder investigation has been launched after two males were stabbed on Hall Lane, Brentwood Terrace, in Armley, Leeds.

“I would like to renew our appeal for anyone who has information about the attack or footage which could assist our investigation to contact us.
