Dominic O'Neill, Kyle Warren and Billy Hines died when the black Ford Ka they were travelling in came off the road and hit a tree in Tivetshall Road, Pulham Market at 11.45pm on Wednesday.

Since then there has been an outpouring of tributes from across the community, culminating in a gathering of hundreds of the trio's friends at Morrisons car park in Diss on Sunday before they travelled in a convoy of vehicles to Great Yarmouth.

Kyle's father Daniel Warren, 37, said: 'You could see what sort of kids they were by many people turned up.

'I didn't know Dom but Kyle and Billy grew up together. They were always best mates from primary school. They were wonderful kids.'
