Viola Beach: 'The music came first', say friends in tribute

Friends at the bar where four members of British indie band, Viola Beach, worked have paid tribute to the musicians.

Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe and Jack Dakin were killed when their car plunged more than 25m (82ft) from a highway bridge into a canal near Stockholm.

The band were part of the line-up for Swedish music festival Where is the Music? on Friday and were due to play a gig in Guildford in Surrey on Saturday.

Adam Lawson owns The Lounge, a bar in Warrington where the group often performed.
