AN ASTONISHING outpouring of grief today symbolises the love and affection in which Scott Towler and Dean Bloomfield were held.

Among more than 200 floral tributes laid at the site in Fore Hamlet, Ipswich, where they were fatally injured are reminders of what the 15-year-olds meant to their friends and loved ones.

Youngsters who are desperately trying to cope with their own heartbreak at the loss have helped turned the roadside into a shrine to the Stoke High School pupils.
