The extended family of a couple and their son who were killed in a crash on the A47 in Norfolk has been traced, police said.

Jeffrey Hain, 66, his wife Marion, 69, and son Christopher, 36, from Newhey, Rochdale died when their Kia Cee'd collided with a lorry near East Winch.

Students studying for careers in the emergency services pulled Mr Hain's son from the car, but he died at the scene.

The lorry driver suffered minor injuries in Wednesday's accident.

Mr Hain was a lay reader at St Thomas' church in the Greater Manchester village.

The students aged 17 to 19 from a college in Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth, had been en route to a course in the Peak District when they stopped to help.
