The fund-raising page has been founded by Jordan Seed, who posted: "I feel it is our duty as adults in society to ensure our youth of today feel they are supported through these tragic events."

Four teenagers from Greater Manchester were arrested on suspicion of Andrew's murder.

On Saturday (July 20) three were released without charge, with a fourth, an 18-year-old man from Ashton-under-Lyne, released on bail pending further enquiries.

More than £650 has so far been raised from more than 40 donations.
