THE uncle of a teenager who was fatally stabbed has said he has been overwhelmed by the support for his 5k runs in his nephew's memory.

Danny Davis lost his nephew, former Dursley Rugby Club player, Ramarni Crosby, to knife crime last month.

Ramarni, from Frampton on Severn, was just 16 when he was killed on December 15.

Since his death, his uncle said he is determined to try and help spare other families the same heartache.

Throughout January, Danny has been running 5km a day throughout January to fund community groups to help get children off the streets.

And he has put out an open invitation, asking people to join or sponsor his evening runs in Gloucester.

The amount of people taking part has been steadily growing during the month, with hundreds now joining the nightly runs.

Danny posted two photos, comparing the amount of people who took part in the first run, on January 1, with Tuesday night's run, and said he felt overwhelmed by the support.

"To go from the first night's turn out to tonight (Tuesday) is incredible, in just 11 days," he said.

"I want to thank everyone for their support. You are all helping me and my family massively and we are really sending out a massive massive message about the awareness of knife crime and the potential consequences."

Everyone is welcome to join Danny on his runs, which are taking place every evening in January.

Meet at the Butlers Venue Bar in Eastgate Street at 7pm.
