In memory of teenager Kajetan Migdal, who was killed on his way home from his school prom in Stevenage last month, an event "to draw the community together in a gesture of love and support towards his family and friends" has been held at his former primary school.

Kajetan Migdal, 18, a pupil at The Saint John Henry Newman Catholic School in Stevenage, was fatally stabbed on May 27 in Cuttys Lane.

On Wednesday last week, people gathered at St Thomas More Catholic Primary School in Letchworth for the planting of a tree in Kajetan's memory, followed by a slideshow and "the opportunity to share treasured stories", explained headteacher Jane Perry.

She said: "We are devastated by the loss of this fine young man and wanted to draw the community together in a gesture of love and support towards his family and friends."

Patrick Sharp, 18, of Cuttys Lane in Stevenage, has been charged with Kajetan's murder.
