Tributes have been paid to a talented England under-18 cricketer and ice hockey player who was among the three killed in Nottingham yesterday, reports RTE.

Two 19-year-old students and a man in his 50s were victims of attackers who stole an elderly victim’s van and tried to run over three others in Nottingham.

Nottinghamshire Police said a 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and has been arrested and remains in custody.

Barnaby Weber and Grace Kumar were students at the University of Nottingham.

Grace is the daughter of Dr Sinead O’Malley, a consultant anesthetist in Dublin, who now lives in the UK.

Her grandfather Professor Dr. Kevin O’Malley, Former Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland.

Her father Sanjay Kumar is also a doctor.

She moved to Nottingham to study medicine at the city’s university, reports RTE.

The school’s site manager, Ian Coates, was named as the third victim. He was stabbed to death on Magdala Road.

Commissioner Kate Meynell told reporters the force was not looking for anyone else involved in the incident and no arrests had been made.

Two students were stabbed on Ilkeston Road in Nottingham’s student district at around 4am.

Ms Mennell said the body of a 50-year-old man was found on Magdala Road.

All three were found dead on the road by members of the public, police said.

Ms Meynell confirmed that officers had carried out searches of a number of properties across the town and that cordons had been set up along parts of Ilkeston Road.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman told broadcasters in Westminster: “We need to allow the police the time and the space to carry out all of their operational activity to determine the motive. It’s right that Nottinghamshire Police are working with Counter Terrorism Policing. But it’s also fair to say that everybody and all professionals on the front line are keeping an open mind as to what the precise motive might have been,” reports RTE.
