The 15-year-old, who had only recently met the lad, was allegedly attacked by another boy outside a pizza takeaway.

Holly died a few hours later, and her 16-year-old boyfriend was also stabbed and taken to the hospital.

Holly’s heartbroken mum, Micala Trussler, revealed yesterday her daughter had been “so excited about her new relationship”.

Micala, 33, wrote on Facebook, “I can never thank him enough for attempting to save my baby girl.”

Holly was attacked outside Pizza Pizza in Hexham, Northumberland, shortly after school on Friday.

She and her boyfriend staggered into the takeaway, where shocked employees rushed to assist them.

“You don’t expect this kind of thing in Hexham,” one employee said. I tried to assist, but I was unsuccessful.”

Holly, a keen dancer, was a year 10 student at Hexham’s Queen Elizabeth High School.

“We are in shock following the terrible events of Friday evening and devastated by the loss of Holly, a truly lovely student who was quiet, conscientious, helpful, and kind,” the statement said.

Devastated family and friends also paid tribute to the adolescent, who lived in Haltwhistle with her mother and stepfather Lee, 34.

“To our baby Holly,” her mother wrote in a note. Our hearts are breaking right now. We adore you to pieces. I adore Mam and Lee. See you soon, lovely.”

“Lots of love, Holly,” said another card. “The world’s best big sister.” “You were amazing,” her grandparents wrote. Nana and Grandad, we love you.”

The boyfriend is recovering from surgery on Saturday. “The most frightening thing is the number of young people who feel they have to carry knives,” a relative said.

“It’s a very warm and loving community,” Mayor Derek Kennedy added. It’s taken everyone by surprise.”

A 16-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and having an offensive weapon.

He is scheduled to appear before Newcastle magistrates tomorrow.
