Viola Beach crash inquiry begins in Sweden
An investigation is under way into the accident that killed British indie band Viola Beach and their manager in Sweden on Saturday.
Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe, Jack Dakin and manager Craig Tarry, who were aged between 20 and 33, were killed when their car plunged more than 25m (82ft) from a bridge into a canal.
The band had hours earlier played their first gig outside the UK.
Their families said they had been doing what they loved.
