Tributes paid to school site manager and students following deadly city rampage

A “beloved and respected” academy site manager has been named as the third victim of a deadly rampage in Nottingham as tributes also continue to flood in for two students fatally knifed in the street.

Ian Coates, who worked as part of L.E.A.D Academy Trust, was described by Huntingdon Academy and Warren Academy’s executive headteacher as “a much-loved colleague who always went the extra mile for the benefit of our

children”.

Two talented sportspeople from the University of Nottingham, Barnaby Webber and Grace Kumar, were also killed in the attacks in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Nottinghamshire Police said a 31-year-old man was tasered and arrested on suspicion of murder after the pair were stabbed to death in Ilkeston Road at about 4am on Tuesday.

Mr Coates was then found fatally knifed in Magdala Road before the suspect is believed to have stolen his van and driven at pedestrians in Milton Street.

Three people were injured in the van attack, with one in a critical condition in hospital and two suffering minor injuries.
