The frieze, which was unveiled outside Parr Hall by the commissioned artist Tom Murphy, depicts the band alongside iconic elements of Warrington and serves as a permanent tribute in their memory.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Russ Bowden, said: “The unveiling of the frieze is a celebration of Jack, River, Kris, Tom and Craig, their achievements, and their iconic music. I am pleased that the council has been able to work with their families to create this fitting tribute, which serves as a humbling reminder of their story.”

The monument is not only a testament to the love the boys had for each other - but also the way that the people of Warrington showed their love and support.
