Five Britons, believed to be the members of indie band Viola Beach and their manager, have died in a road crash in Sweden where they staged their first international gig, police said Sunday.
“Five people, all British, died in a car accident Friday night,” police spokesman Towe Hagg told AFP, while the British Foreign Office confirmed the deaths of five men aged between 20 and 35.
