A candle has been lit in memory of the three teenagers who died in a devastating crash in Pulham Market.
Dominic O'Neill, Kyle Warren and Billy Hines were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in Tivetshall Road at 11.45pm last night.
Since then there has been an outpouring of tributes in the community, leading St John the Baptist Church in Harleston - a town where the teenagers were well-known - to set up a place in the church where people can pay their respects.
People can sign a book of memories at the church, with a sign encouraging people to: 'Please stop and remember. Remember joys shared and good times together. Remember and grieve for three good young lives lost. Remember and pray for comfort and hope in this dark time.'
The Rev Nigel Tuffnell, from the church, said: 'There's pain in the town and there's pain for the three families. The boys are well-known in the town.
'This is a centrepoint in the town and it seems right that it would be a place where people could go and express their grief if they wish to lay flowers or whatever they want to do.
'There is a book there where they can write what they're feeling.'

The Rev Tuffnell added that: 'The only way to describe what has happened is shock. You just can't believe it.
'They are three young lives that we know so well. The fact they're not around is something difficult to get your head around.'
