Seven teenagers arrested as father stabbed to death with screwdriver in Newcastle

A devoted father and lawyer was stabbed to death with a screwdriver in an unprovoked attack, as seven teenagers were arrested.

They said in a statement: "Peter was a kind and caring man who was always first to help others.

"He had so much of his life left to live and he'll be in our hearts and thoughts every day."

He worked in Newcastle for Royal IHC Limited, which has a city centre office close to where he was attacked.

Mr Duncan, from Newcastle, was stabbed once in the chest.

Northumbria Police said the arrested youths were a 14 year-old, two 15-year-olds and four 17-year-olds in connection with the incident, one of which is believed to be the main suspect.

"Peter's family have requested that their privacy is respected during this difficult time.

"We are committed to finding out the circumstances behind Peter's death, and I'd like to thank members of the public who've been in touch passing on information that could assist detectives with this investigation.
