British band killed in car crash

All four members of the upcoming indie band Viola Beach and their manager have died in a car crash in Sweden. The band was travelling after performing at the Where Is The Music? festival in Stockholm when their vehicle fell 80ft through the gap in a drawbridge. Eyewitnesses state that the car seemed to ignore or fail to notice all warnings and barriers. The band had released their debut single last year and had performed at Reading and Leeds. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the band and their manager.
