THE family of Ryan Lamb are asking the community to gather on the Steve Prescott Bridge tonight for what would have been his 21st birthday.

Ryan, from Sutton, died from a stab wound earlier this year after an incident at land behind The Phoenix pub, off Liverpool Street.

His family are asking family, friends and the public to mark his birthday, today, Monday, December 4, by gathering on the Steve Prescott Bridge with red or white balloons.

They are also backing the #NoMoreKnives campaign started by Danny Fox’s family, who also died from a stab wound last year.

The Crown Prosecution Service say there is currently insufficient evidence to charge two men and a 17-year-old who were arrested in connection with Ryan's death.

The 18-year-old man from Kensington and a 17-year-old boy from Rainhill, who were held on suspicion of attempted murder, as well as a 21-year-old man, from Huyton, who questioned on suspicion of assault, will have no further action taken against them.

John Dilworth, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor of MerseyCheshire Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Merseyside Police brought a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for charging advice following the death of Ryan Lamb in St Helens on April 23.

“The evidence shows that a physical dispute had taken place between three men in an area not covered by CCTV. Each of them sustained injuries.

“At present there are no other witnesses. What happened after that cannot not be established by admissible evidence and is the subject of pure conjecture.

“At the present time, there is insufficient evidence to charge any of the suspects with a criminal offence.”
