Floral tributes mourn loss of Armley stabbing victim, 18

By Connor Briggs

Floral tributes have begun to pile up for the 18-year-old man murdered in Armley. 

Jamie Meah was stabbed near the junction of Hall Lane and Brentwood Terrace in Armley on Friday. A 16-year-old was also attacked but his injuries were not life-threatening. 

Flowers and cards can be seen alongside the greenery on Strawberry Lane and on side streets Brentwood Grove and Brentwood Street.

One message reads: “To Jamie, long live my bright savage. I love and miss you, I’m sorry this happened to you.”

Another tribute says: “Jamie I don’t even know what to say. I can’t believe we were talking that day and that happened later. Such a nice lad taken far too soon.” 

Further down, on Brentwood Street, tributes have amassed outside a house. A message written on a balloon reads: “Love you our Jamie boy”, with another tribute saying: “RIP JM FROM BDON LOVE BRO.”

Police are still appealing for information about the attack. A 30-year-old man was arrested at the weekend and has since been released on police bail. 

This is the second stabbing seen in Armley in the past month, after 17-year-old Jordan Gangata was killed on 12 March at a house party.
