Heartfelt tributes have been paid to three young people who died when in a crash near the A140 at Pulham Market.
The trio have been named locally as Dominic O'Neill, Kyle Warren and Billy Hines, who are believed to be from the local area.
Police were called to Pulham Market at just after 11.45pm last night to reports that a black Ford Ka had left the road at Tivetshall Road.
Firefighters and ambulance crews also went to the scene of the crash near the A140 roundabout.
But, despite the efforts of emergency services, including fire crews from Long Stratton, Harleston and Diss, the three males aged in their late teens were confirmed dead at the scene.
Katie Dade, 19, of Tattlepot Road, Pulham Market, said: 'It is just such a shock. We didn't expect it. It's such a small village, you never expect anything like this to happen.'
She added that the mood of the village was 'very much sadness and grief'.
A memorial and book of condolences has been set up in St John the Baptist Church in Harleston, around five miles from Pulham Market.

One message said: 'Three young boys taken away too quickly. My family's thoughts are with you.'
A candle has been lit in memory of the teenagers and a prayer dedicated to them.
Floral tributes were left at the roadblock at the village end of the road.
One of them read: 'In our thoughts forever and always. Never forgotten.'
Tivetshall Road was closed in both directions between Pulham Market and the A140 for the majority of the day to allow emergency services to continue to investigate. It reopened at around 6.15pm.
Police urged anyone with any information about the crash to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) at Norfolk Constabulary on 101.
