His mother Jackie, originally from Richmond, Surrey, has talked about her destruction.

She runs American dinner, called Route 66, in the Costa Brave resort with her husband, Andy.

Mrs. Milroy, who emigrated to Spain 26 years ago, said: & I cannot think clearly at all, I am just in so much shock.

& # 39; We haven't talked to the police yet, so we don't really know what happened.

& # 39; I hope things get a little clearer later.

& # 39; We only know that they are still looking for the person who killed my son. & # 39;

Andrew, who was born in Spain, was attacked around 4 am in the central shopping area of ‚Äč‚ÄčLloret.

A nearby hotel protector called the police after being warned by the boy's friends.

Ambulance staff found him in an alley in an alley through a clothing store.

He died after being rushed to the Sant Jaume hospital in the nearby town of Blanes, a 40-minute drive north of Barcelona.

A post-mortem had to be executed later today.

A spokesperson for the Mossos d & # 39; Esquadra, the local police force investigating the crime, said: & # 39; An investigating judge has issued a confidentiality order that prevents us from going into detail about what happened.

& # 39; We can only confirm that a British 15-year-old living in Lloret de Mar is stabbed to death in the city on Sunday morning at 4 am.

& # 39; An investigation is ongoing. There have been no arrests yet. & # 39;

A spokesperson for the British Embassy in Madrid added: & We are aware of the death of a British citizen in Lloret de Mar and we offer consular assistance to his family. & # 39;

Tragic Andrew was born in Spain and attended a local school called Inmalucada Concepcion.

A friend left a Twitter message with the text & # 39; Rest in peace, Andrew. & # 39;

His parents used to run a pub that was popular with former pats and vacationers at the resort called Sergeant Peppers Fun Pub.

They also had a bar called Braveheart & # 39; s International Pub before they opened their current company.

The stabbing was the third in which a British boy was involved in Spain in the past week.

Another British teenager was taken to the hospital last Wednesday after being stabbed in the groin.
