One of the cousins, who did not want to be named, said: "He's come here with his long-time best friend since childhood, comes to a party and both of their lives just got ripped away from them.

"He was just so respectful to, like, his family and friends."

A double murder investigation is under way but no arrests have been made.

On Sunday, two forensic officers were seen inspecting an object on the driveway of a house in Archford Croft and there appeared to be blood smeared on the front door.

A neighbour said she heard a "commotion" and screaming shortly before midnight on the night of the stabbings.

"The police were here pretty quick," she said.

Another neighbour told BBC News she believed the gathering was a party for a teenage girl living in the house.

Others said they had seen a birthday banner hanging on the door.
