THE tragic news surrounding members of indie band Viola Beach and their manager sent shockwaves across Warrington and the world of music this morning.
DJs, musicians, fans and friends have all been paying tribute to the four-piece after their deaths in Sweden.

This afternoon we are calling on music fans across the town to download the Viola Beach track Swings and Waterslides in the hope of getting the Warrington band the spot in the charts they so richly deserved.
