His mum Nicola Maxwell, 36, said: Our neighbours thought there was a drugs raid going on when all the police turned up on the road.
“It was so lovely to see him being a normal teenager surrounded by his friends,and we’re so grateful to those off-duty police officers who gave up their time to make Kieran feel really special.
