The family of a man who was found stabbed to death outside a house in Manchester say he was "fun-loving and friendly" person.

The body of 24-year-old David Brown was found in the front garden of a house on Chorlton Road, Hulme, on Friday.

A post-mortem examination revealed that Mr Brown, originally from Burnley in Lancashire, died as the result of a stab wound to his left leg.

A murder inquiry is under way and police are appealing for information.

Family devastated

Officers from the Greater Manchester Police major incident team are following a number of lines of inquiry to find out why he was killed.

In a statement released on Saturday, Mr Brown's family revealed he was an aspiring teacher who had lots of friends.

"David was a fun-loving son, who enjoyed life to the full. Although he was a very quiet person he had lots of friends.

"He had aspired to go and live in Spain to teach English, and had just enrolled to learn Spanish so he could achieve this dream.

"We are devastated about what has happened, and will miss him more than we can say."
