Tributes are being paid to members of a young British band who have been killed in a car crash in Sweden.
'Viola Beach' from Warrington were rising stars on the indie scene and had been due to play in England last night.
Four members of the group died along with their manager.
Photographer and friend Georgia Park has said she is shocked by the news: “They were just an amazing band.
“Words just can’t describe the sadness, the loss of such an amazing group.
“They loved their work, they were such a talented, talented group, I just can’t believe that we have lost them really.”
The band had played in Cork venue Cyprus Avenue just ten short days ago.

Five people killed on Saturday when their car plunged off the road into a canal in Sweden were British citizens, police have said.
Stockholm police spokesman Martin Bergholm said the five victims were men aged between 20 and 35 but he declined to further identify them or give other details of the men, saying it was not a police matter.
He said the road was slippery and it was dark when the car drove off a highway bridge falling more than 25 metres (82ft) into a canal near the Swedish capital.
Their bodies were recovered by divers.
Mr Bergholm said police were still investigating the cause of the accident on the E4 highway in Stockholm's Sodertalje district.
