Four teenagers drowned after the car they were travelling in left a road in Gwynedd, north-west Wales, and was submerged in water, a coroner has said.
The inquests into the deaths of Jevon Hirst, 16, Harvey Owen, 17, Wilf Fitchett, 17, and Hugo Morris, 18, all from the Shropshire area, were opened and adjourned on Wednesday.
None of the teenagers’ families attended the brief four-minute hearing in which Kate Robertson, Coroner for north-west Wales, stated the provisional cause of their deaths was drowning.
The teenagers were reported missing on Sunday 19 November after travelling to the region on a camping trip.
Their bodies were found three days later in a Ford Fiesta that was discovered on its roof, partially submerged in water.
