Every week MTV brings you right back up to date with all of the latest news stories from the music world.
We May Never Know What Caused The Viola Beach Crash
Back in February, Viola Beach a four-person band from Warrington, crashed into a raised section of a bridge and plummeted into a canal following a gig in Sweden. It was a truly terrible tragedy.
An inquest found that no alcohol or drugs was found in the blood of the driver, Mr Tarry, and so questions have been as to why the band’s vehicle crashed.
Cheshire Coroner Nicholas Rheinberg recently said: "It's not for me to speculate... I don't think it ever will be known what happened." He added that "the evidence did not reveal the cause of sequence of events" that led to their deaths.
According to the BBC, Mr Rheinberg also said there were "frustrating missing gaps" and that he was not able to demand information from Swedish authorities as he could from British organisations.
