A GANG of about 15 people, all but three of them teenage girls, was being hunted by the police last night after a man was beaten and stabbed to death on a housing estate.

Stephen Mills, 35, was assaulted and then chased by the mob on the Monsall estate in north Manchester before being repeatedly punched and kicked in the head by a man. The incident started at about 9.30pm on Wednesday, when a gang of people started banging on the rear window and door of Mr Mills' house in the Monsall estate in the north of the city. Mr Mills fled to his sister's home but later returned home. While walking back to his house he was attacked. Police said yesterday they were baffled about the motive for the murder. Anyone with information should contact the police on 0800 555 111.
