Tributes were today left at the scene where an 18-year-old man was killed after a crash between a stolen scrambler bike and a car.
James Malins was riding on the bike, with another 18-year-old man, who were said to be travelling in tandem with a second scrambler, on Booker Avenue in Allerton.
Witnesses said both scramblers didn't have their lights on before it smashed into a VW Tiguan car, carrying two children, aged nine and 11.Luckily, the innocents in this weren't hurt.
And you'd think the knowledge that their fellow thugs had almost killed innocent parties would temper the usual mawkish display of sentimentality and self-pity at the loss of one of their comrades in petty crime.
But this is Liverpool, after all:
This afternoon, floral tributes built up at the scene, close to the junction with Brodie Avenue, to the teenager who was nicknamed "Fish Head."
Messages had been scrawled on a plastic container on the pavement, which read, "Long live Jay!" and "One in a million!"How nice.
Others described the 18-year-old as "one wheel Fish," an apparent reference to his style of scrambler bike riding.'One IQ Point Fish' might have been more accurate...
