SHRINE ATTACK AGONY; Mum's appeal to wreckers.

Byline: By JAMES GLOVER Crime Reporter

THE shrine to murdered teenager Jay-Jay Mayze has been attacked for the third time in a week.

Angie, mother of the 16-year-old, and his family have been devastated by repeated vandalism as soon as friends or relatives lay fresh flowers at the site in Clock Face, St Helens.

Police are investigating whether the damage could be racially-motivated in the aftermath of an Asian man being charged with killing of the popular Liverpool FC fan.

Today Jay-Jay's family urged the people responsible for the attacks to let them grieve in peace.

Angie Mayze said: "It's heartbreaking."

The vandalism followed a fireworks party for friends and family to remember Jay-Jay on what would have been his 17th birthday last Wednesday.

Jay-Jay died after he was attacked behind the Balti Spice takeaway in Clock Face Road on January 13.

Boshor Uddin, 37, of Bes-wick Roids Street, Rochdale, will appear at Liverpool crown court on April 24 charged with murder. Three other men, aged 30, 30 and 33, were released on bail.
