Police crash victims Kyrees Sullivan, 16, & Harvey Evans to be buried together as pals are laid to rest at funeral today | The Sun

TWO teenage best friends killed in a police chase crash will be buried together in the same grave at a funeral service later today.

Kyrees Sullivan, 16, and Harvey Evans, 15, died on May 22 – and their deaths led to riots on the streets of Ely, Cardiff.

The pair died from head injuries when they fell from a £4,000 Sur-Ron e-bike.

Today thousands of mourners are expected to attend their joint service.

The church ministers revealed that, because Kyrees and Harvey had been so close since nursery, the families felt they would be buried together in the same grave.

The Reverend Canon Jan Gould, said: “It’s important for the family especially, but actually for the whole community to have some closure now and to begin to move on.

"My hope is that moving on from this now the community can begin to rebuild. And hopefully the families will find some peace from the service.

"I'm going to be talking about how grief can sometimes feel like a storm that's overwhelming and we don't know how to feel.

"We can have all kinds of feelings that we can't manage and I'm going to be encouraging them to reach out for that peace that Jesus brought when he stilled the storm and that he longs to still the storms of our lives.”

The funeral procession will include two limousines, four hearses and eight Rolls Royce cars along with between 200 and 400 motorbikes – although their families asked that no motorcycles, Sur-Ron electric bikes or scooters are at the services.

A family friend posted the details saying: "I have been asked to let family and friends know that the funerals of Kyrees and Harvey will be held on Thursday 6th July 1pm at the Church of Resurrection then to their final resting place at Western Cemetery at 2.30pm.

"Please wear what you feel comfortable in. All we ask is that you incorporate something blue. Let's celebrate the lives of these two young boys and come together as one to remember them and show how loved they are."

A second post read: "It's been asked by the families that absolutely no motorbikes, Sur-Ron's or scooters etc are to be at the funeral as the families have been told the police would have to be made aware and this is the last thing we want.

"We hope to see you all on the 6th July to celebrate their life and give our boys the best send off they deserve."

Two police officers are being investigated for gross misconduct following the deaths of the two boys on May 22.

South Wales Police initially denied officers had pursued the boys but CCTV later emerged of a marked van following them.

The officers, who haven't been named, have now been served with gross misconduct notices during an investigation by the police watchdog.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct said the driver and passenger in the marked police van have been served the notices.

Investigators are reviewing hundreds of video footage clips gathered as a result of house-to-house enquiries.

They have also taken statements from local residents and set up witness appeal boards on nearby streets.
