A 13-year-old girl has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was stabbed to death near a background.

Four other teenagers, including two girls aged 13 and 15, have also being arrested on suspicion of the murder of a father who was knifed to death near a playground.

Lorry driver Darren Kelly, 42, was killed in Basildon, Essex, after confronting a group of young people.

The lorry driver staggered to a block of flats after being stabbed in the street shouting 'I have been stabbed'

Post-mortem examination also revealed that the provisional cause of death was multiple stab wounds and blood loss.

After being stabbed, Darren went to the home of Carole Crisp.

She said: ‘I was at home and my buzzer went. I didn’t answer it but it kept going, so I did. He just said: “Help me, I’ve been stabbed”.

She added that she ran downstairs immediately and she called another neighbour who was a paramedic but unfortunately 'We did what we could, but he was in a very bad way.

Paramedics and an air ambulance then arrived at the scene and took Mr Kelly to Basildon Hospital but he died a short time later from his injuries.

Police are still investigating the terrible incident, meanwhile tributes have also been paid to Mr Kelly on social media.

Debbie Poulton wrote: 'A really funny guy whose life has been cut tragically short. Your Facebook statuses brightened up my day, I feel privileged to have known you.'

Another wrote: 'I'll always remember his cheeky smile and zany sense of humour. A tragic loss.'

This is not the first time this month that a teenager has stabbed or killed an adult, some few weeks back a Danish teenager, murdered her mother with a kitchen knife after watching ISIS beheading videos
