Two men and a woman who died in a road crash in Nottinghamshire have been named by police.

Teresa Mitchell, 38, from Mansfield, and Ricky Goodall, 24, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, died in the collision in Mansfield Woodhouse on Friday night.

They were in a BMW which collided with a Honda motorbike and a Ford Ranger pick-up truck.

The motorcyclist, Alan Dexter, 47, from Pleasley Vale in Derbyshire, was also killed in the crash in Debdale Lane.

Two other men, aged 22 and 27, who were in the BMW, and the 29-year-old man driving the pick-up truck, were taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Det Sgt James Greely from the East Midlands Serious Collision Investigation Unit said they were looking at a "number of lines of inquiry".

"Some of those factors include the weather conditions at the time and I'm able to say that speed does appear to be a factor in this collision at this early stage, due to the amount of damage sustained by all the vehicles involved," he said.

Nottinghamshire Police have asked anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them.
