Three teenagers have died after a crash on a Norfolk road.
Police were called to Pulham Market at just after 11.45pm last night to reports that a black Ford KA had left the road.
Firefighters and ambulance crews also went to the scene of the crash, in Tivetshall Road, near the A140 roundbout.
But, despite the efforts of emergency services, including fire crews from Long Stratton, Harleston and Diss, three males aged in their late teens were confirmed dead at the scene.
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.

'We know people have passed away but we don't know who they are.'
Clayton Hudson, who represents the village on South Norfolk Council, said: 'My condolences to the families and friends of those involved.
'We don't know the identities of those who have died, but it's likely they are going to have lived locally.
'So, while there's shock in the village this morning, it's likely there will be a further outpouring of grief.'
Police urged anyone with any information about the crash to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) at Norfolk Constabulary on 101.
