Inquests have been opened and adjourned into the deaths of two teenagers in a Suffolk car crash.

Macauley Clements, 16, of Carpenter Close, Ixworth, was a passenger in a BMW which was involved in a road accident on January 24 on the A14 at Bury St Edmunds.

Macauley, who had attended Thurston Community College, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, but died the following day.

His friend, 19-year-old Adam Weller, from Weeting, near Brandon, who had been driving the car, died at the scene.

Inquests into their deaths were opened and adjourned today at the coroner’s office in Bury St Edmunds.

Macauley was set for a career in the Army, like his grandfather Gordon Ryder.

The teenager’s family described him as happy, fun-loving, polite and helpful.
