    A 15 year-old boy is being held and questioned following the stabbing to death of 61 year-old teacher Anne Maguire. Other pupils at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds are reported to have 'brought her attacker down'.

    The alarm was raised before noon today but Anne - a much loved teacher of Spanish - died on her way to hospital. She is said to have been a teacher for 40 years.

    A huge number of tributes are being paid to Anne, and former pupils are even travelling across the country to pay their respects to this much loved teacher of religion and Spanish. They are unanimous that Anne was kind, nurturing and compassionate and a 'mother to the school'.

    She was due to retire in one year's time. :(

    The 15 year-old being held is said by neighbours to be 'quiet and shy'. Some of his fellow pupils are saying about the same, but putting it as 'weird' and a 'loner'. The mail is pointing out his grim reaper avatar. Grimly ironic, given the circumstances.

    There is something very poignant about both Anne's daughters growing up to be ballerinas. I think it's because becoming a ballerina is often a fleeting dream for little girls, but it looks like Anne helped her little girls' dreams come true.

    Rest in peace, Mrs Maguire.

    I can't believe this happened,doesn't seem like anyone had a bad word to say about her.

    To have dedicated 40years of her life to teaching and being in her last year before retirement is just heartbreaking.

    This boy must have some serious issues going on. He needs to be sent to big boy prison but highly unlikely over here

    The article I linked also explains that the laws protecting minors in the UK usually mean their school can't be mentioned either. But the judge has agreed that would be 'absurd' in this case, at this stage.

    Usually when these internet trolls are prosecuted over making offensive remarks about people who have just been killed, I just think 'stupid'.

    This one makes me distinctly uneasy though. Hope police keep an eye on him when he's out of jail. You can read what he said about Anne's death at the link. Too offensive for me to want to repeat.

    I understand internet trolls about as much as I do murderers and kidnappers. Not a bit. What compels a person to say such idiotic thing?
