Boy dies after smashing through greenhouse while fleeing yobs firing fireworks

A teenager has died after smashing through a greenhouse while fleeing a gang of yobs throwing fireworks around.

Qais Muhammad, 17, died after the gang of 50 strong hooligans threw fireworks across a residential street in Halifax, West Yorkshire, with two police vans and 20 officers spotted confronting the group.

The 17-year-old is said to have fled into a property, climbed a 6ft wooden fence and not realised there was a greenhouse on the other side, which he crashed through, The Mirror reported.

Qais was left seriously injured and despite being rushed to hospital and best efforts of medics, he tragically died from his injuries.

Terrified locals had brought the horrifying gang of yobs to the attention of police after they began throwing fireworks and launching them in the residential area at around 6:45pm.

Discarded gas canisters and firework casings were found littered on the grass near the street afterwards, with some tubes of fireworks displaying skull and cross bone imagery.

One local speaking of the gang, Sadaqat Hussain, 37, said: "These boys were not from this area, and were causing a nuisance. They were throwing all kinds of fireworks from about 6.45pm onwards.

"The gang of lads then started throwing the fireworks at the police officers and the police vans. It was very scary and like it was pure chaos."

Of Qais' death, Sadaqat said while he did not see the tragedy, he and others in the street had heard the youngster had "cut his chest on the broken glass and has bled to death".

A police cordon remains in place following the tragic death of the 17-year-old, which was described by another resident, Waqas Mohammed, 53, as "shocking and very sad".

Another local said of the group of yobs: "I don’t know why this street was picked by this group of lads. It must have been organised for so many to turn up. They were not from around here."
