“I am devastated to learn of the tragic death of a 15-year-old boy in Horsforth.

“My thoughts are with his family and friends and the local community affected by this utterly senseless incident. I will be liaising closely with West Yorkshire Police and partners to ensure we are doing all we can to provide reassurance and support in the days and weeks to come.
