Officers have confirmed that the two 19 year olds who lost their lives in a tragic collision on the A46 are Sian Chambers and Alex Ross.
Alex's family have made the following statement. "Alex was an extremely talented musician. He was a former pupil at Caistor Grammar School where he won a scholarship to the Purcell School of Music in London. A double bass player, he was training at the Royal Academy of Music, also in London, where he was a second year student. He had a brilliant future ahead of him which has been sadly taken away."
Sian's family do not feel able to release a statement at this time.
Note to editors: We would like to ask on behalf of both families that their privacy is respected and they are given space to try to come to terms with this devastating news. We would ask that no direct approach is made by the media to the family and appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
