A rock concert is taking place in London to remember the lives of three teenagers killed in a road crash in Suffolk in July.

Driver Claire Stoddart, 18, her sister Jennifer, 15, and their friend Carla Took, 18, all from Lowestoft, Suffolk, died in the accident on the A12.

They were returning from a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in Ipswich.

The support band, Dirty Pretty Things, will headline Wednesday's concert in aid of the Make Roads Safe campaign.

Carl Barat, lead singer of Dirty Pretty Things, said: "The recent deaths in Suffolk of Claire, Jennifer and Carla were so sad, such a waste of young lives, and this is happening to families every day."

Some 200 pairs of tickets to the concert, at The Coronet in Southwark, were given away free in a prize draw by the Make Roads Safe campaign and the band.

Claire and Jennifer's father, Phil Stoddart, said: "I hope that the Make Roads Safe campaign will help other parents avoid the pain we have been going through as a result of the tragic loss of Claire and Jennifer."

The Make Roads Safe campaign calls on world leaders to take action on road traffic injuries.
