Funeral dates are set after crash tragedy

The funerals of three teens killed in a horror car smash will take place next week.

Driver Michael Gallagher, 16, and passenger Thomas Hughes, 15, will have a joint service at Doncaster Minster on Wednesday at 10.30am followed by a burial at Rose Hill Cemetry at noon.

The funeral of 14-year-old Antonia Browne will take place on Monday at St Peter-in-Chains Roman Catholic Church, in Chequer Road followed by a committal at Rose Hill Crematorium.

All three died when the car they were travelling in hit a tree in Sheffield Road, Conisbrough, in the early hours of January 30.

Coroner Nicola Mundy opened and adjourned inquests into their deaths last week to await a full police investigation and autopsy results.

Sgt Andrew Whittaker told the inquest that Michael, from Warmsworth, was believed to have been the driver and was still alive when emergency services arrived but died in hospital.

Thomas, of Bessacarr, was in the back seat and Antonia, of Balby, is believed to have been the front passenger. They were both already dead when paramedics arrived and their bodies were later identified by parents.
