Tributes were paid to two teenagers who died in a car crash on Sunday.
The families of Riley Hedley, 17, and Mikey Easton, 16, said it was the “hardest post ever” as they remembered their sons.
Flowers were left at the scene in Morpeth, Northumberland, after the collision around 12.40am today.
Police were called following a report of a collision on the A196 near Coopies Way.
Officers and emergency services arrived, but Riley and Mikey were pronounced dead at the scene.
A tribute left near the crash site read, “Fly high Mikey.”
Mikey’s dad wrote on social media: “Hardest post ever. Fly high my beautiful little boy….. Completely disappointed devastated hope you are peace my little angel father and mother love you so much,” according to The Sun.
His sister Ebony wrote: “I can’t believe you’re gone, it doesn’t feel real, we already miss you so much, honestly I don’t know what to say, I’m still so shocked that you gone but we had some great times there and even better memories.’
Meanwhile, Riley’s sister wrote: “I don’t even know where to go my best friend and my brother still don’t even believe it’s real just sat there waiting for you to call me and tease me, like you normally do. You were way too good for this world.
Police said both families were being assisted by specialist officers.
Sergeant Craig Bartle of Northumbria Police said today: “This is an incredibly tragic incident involving two young men with their whole lives ahead of them.
“Our thoughts go out to both the families of the young men and their loved ones who are trying to come to terms with today’s devastating news.
“We will support them in any way we can and ask that the family’s privacy be respected.”
Sergeant Bartle added: “An inquiry has been launched to determine the circumstances of the collision and we are asking anyone who has not yet spoken to us to get in touch, particularly if you have been traveling in the area and may have information or dashcam footage that may assist us with our inquiries.”
Northumberland Police are urging any witnesses or anyone with information to call 101 and quote log NP-20230312-0045.
