Kyle Warren, 17, Billy Hines, 16, and Dominic O'Neill, 18, died on April 6 after the black Ford Ka they were travelling in came off the road and hit a tree in Tivetshall Road, Pulham Market.

Police, firefighters and ambulance crews responded to the crash near the A140 roundabout but despite the best efforts from emergency services, the three teenagers died at the scene.

Their deaths led to an outpouring of community tributes, with hundreds of people attending their funerals and organising events in their honour.

An inquest into their deaths was opened on April 13, which heard they had died from multiple injuries.

Senior coroner for Norfolk Jacqueline Lake adjourned a pre-inquest review today and said an inquest date had been fixed for January 9, 2018 at the Norfolk Coroners' Court.
