Dom Ansah and Ben Gillham-Rice were murdered just before midnight last night after gatecrashers showed up at the £ 400, 000 semi-detached home.

No arrests have been made and next of kin have been informed.
Heartbreaking tributes have flooded in for the two boys, who are both local to the area and known to each other.
Dom’s mum Tracey shared a quote on Facebook, reading: “Drugs don’t love you, drug dealers don’t love you, the lifestyle doesn’t love you but all of it will take you away from the people that do. “
