Three young men were killed when their car crashed off a rural road and into some trees.

The trio, all in their late teens, died at the scene after the black Ford Ka crashed at around 11.50pm on Wednesday, Norfolk Police said.

It happened near the village of Pulham Market, about 17 miles (27km) south of Norwich.

The vehicle had been travelling towards the village along Tivetshall Road.

Police roadblocks were in place on Thursday as officers in white forensic suits investigated.

Police have not released the names of the victims.

Floral tributes were left at the roadblock at the village end of the road.

One of them read: "In our thoughts forever and always. Never forgotten."

Pulham Market has a population of around 1,000, is set in countryside and there are several thatched cottages.

The B-road on which the accident happened links the village to the A140.
