The parents of Callum Riley, 17, who died in Heywood on Saturday morning (17 September) have paid tribute to their 'strong, caring and unforgettable' son.
His mum said: "Callum was a strong and caring young man, loved so deeply by his family, friends and his girlfriend.
"His love for his mother and his brothers was immeasurable. A lovely lad, with a good heart, protective of his family and always the best of intentions. Stolen away from us far too young in life. He will be forever missed, and remembered with love. Life will never be the same again.
"As a family we ask for the respect and privacy whilst we come to terms with this huge loss in our lives."
His dad said: "Callum was a much-loved son, brother and uncle. He was a loving, caring young man who never failed to make us laugh. He will be sadly missed by us all. In death as you were in life: unforgettable."
The investigation into Callum's death is continuing and a number of suspects remain in police custody for questioning.
