The father of a man murdered in Beswick has paid tribute to him.
Shortly after 2am on Sunday police were called to reports a man had been stabbed on Hinckley Street.
21-year-old Hamze Ibrahim Ismail - was taken to hospital where he sadly died from his injuries.
Paying tribute to him, his father Ibrahim Ahmed said:
"Hamze was a loving son and a loving brother, who was always there for his family and friends. He was the type of person who would go out of his way to help others, and now we are broken as a family.
"We can't believe that he's gone, and that he has been taken from us in such a horrific and mindless act of violence.
"We pray that the people responsible for this are brought to justice, and I would urge anyone out there who has any information to contact the police as a matter of urgency.
"Losing Hamze has devastated me as a father, and I wouldn't want any other family to go through what we are going through.
"I would just like to thank the police for their tireless efforts in trying to piece together what has happened and would especially like to thank the community at Hinckley Street, who tried their best to save him. It is a great comfort to me to know that he did not pass away alone."
Mohamed Khashkhush from Wythburn Avenue in Manchester has been charged with murder.
