An appeal to raise money for the funeral of a teenager who died in a road crash with two of his friends has passed £3,000.

Gemma Hewitt set up the appeal in aid of Dominic O'Neill after he died when the black Ford Ka he was travelling in came off the road and hit a tree in Tivetshall Road, Pulham Market.

Kyle Warren and Billy Hines also died in the accident.

'Dom was an amazing drummer, loved tinkering with cars, going out with friends, listening to music but an awful singer,' Ms Hewitt said on the JustGiving page set up after Dominic's death.

'Please support us in helping to raise as much as possible so that his mum Davina can give him the send off he deserves.'

The appeal reached its £2,500 target on Tuesday, with Dominic's mother Davinia thanking everyone for their donations.

But Ms Hewitt said: 'Please don't let this stop you from donating as the more we raise the better the send off we can help Davina give Dom.

'We are sure you will agree a funeral costs much more than our £2,500 target and we had no idea that people would be so generous but let's keep the momentum going and make Dom proud.'

It has so far raised £3,145.

Dozens of people making their donations have also left heartfelt tributes.

Colleen Wickins said: 'A wonderful way to support a lovely mother and my friend. Dominic was her special boy and touched the lives of so many people, may he fly high with the stars.'
