Mason was in the Ford Fiesta on Sunday night along with his best friend Martin Ward, and another teenager named locally as Ryan Lee.

Despite a huge response by emergency services, nothing could be done to save any of the three boys.

Last night, friends and family of the trio held private events to commemorate them, including a firework display which took place at Burgoyne Park, Aston, at 8pm.
