An investigation has been opened into the deaths of three children and two adults in a horror car crash in Leeds.

A stolen Renault Cleo crashed into a tree on Stonegate Road in the Meanwood area of the city on Saturday night.

People in the area at the time described a horrific scene of bodies lying in the road while the car was reduced to a crumpled heap of metal.

A police spokesman said the authorities were met with scenes of “complete carnage” upon arrival at the crash site.

Two of the people in the car were pronounced dead at the scene, while the other three died in hospital, according to police.

All of the five have been named – 28-year-old Anthoney Armour, Robbie Meerun, who was 24, Ellis and Elliot Thorton, who were aged 12 and 15, and Darnell Harte, who was also 15 years old.

A vigil was held for the group opposite the tree on Stonegate Road late on Sunday night.
