The victim, Micheal Roynon, 16, locally known as aspiring drill rapper ‘Mikey’ or ‘YM,’ was attacked during the bash that locals say was crashed by a 200-strong mob after being advertised on social media. His injuries were so severe that he died at the scene at the house in the leafy suburb of Weston, near Bath, just after 11 pm on Saturday night. A 35-year-old woman who was also injured during the attack was later released from Royal United Hospital. A total of eleven teens, including nine boys and two girls, all aged between 15 and 17 were arrested on suspicion of his murder and remain in police custody.

Micheal Roynon Death: Tributes
His boss Craig Sawyer said: ‘He was a great lad with a great heart. He was an amazing lad and all my customers loved him. He used to ring me before school and after school to work, he was a hard worker. All my customers loved him and will miss his smile and politeness. ‘He was due to start full time from today, as he’s just done his GCSEs, which he was looking forward to. A GoFundMe has been set up by a relative and has raised more than £1,500 towards his funeral costs. It reads: ‘As you can imagine his mum and dad are distraught their son will forever be 16. Mikey was such a kind loving and thoughtful soul who cared so much about his friends and family. ‘He was so funny and fearless. This money will more than likely go towards the expenses his family now need to pay out, loss of earnings, funeral, headstone, etc. anything of their choice.’
