AN INQUEST into the death of popular Bournemouth teenager Paul Warne is due to be held on Tuesday, August 19.

The 18-year-old from Boscombe died after his green Renault Clio collided with a tree on Hurn Road, near Ringwood, on March 19.

The trainee mechanic, known as Rodders due to his tall build, was on his way to work at Automotive Vehicle Services in Verwood when the crash happened at around 8.50am.

Paul, a former student at Portchester Community School, now called Harewood College, was just weeks away from becoming a qualified technician at the time of his death.
