Axe attack teenager passed exams
Anthony Walker
Anthony dreamed of studying law at university
Murdered teenager Anthony Walker passed his AS levels in media, law and IT, his family said on Thursday.

The 18-year old was killed in an axe attack in McGoldrick Park in Huyton, Merseyside, last month.

His pass results mean he would have been able to continue his studies at Knowsley Community College, perhaps fulfilling his dream of studying law.

His family said they did not wish to reveal his grades but said they were very proud of him.

Hundreds of people are expected to attend his funeral at Liverpool's Anglican cathedral next week.

Two men, aged 17 and 20, have been charged with his murder.

An inquest into his death was opened and adjourned on Wednesday. The public funeral will be held on 25 August.
