More than 150 pupils have attended the funeral of a teenager who was killed as he walked home with a friend.
Koen Allwood, 15, from Barton died and a girl was seriously injured when they were hit by a car near the Humber Bridge on 13 November.
Hundreds of people, including friends from Baysgarth School, joined the service at St Mary's Church in Barton.
A 23-year-old man arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been released on police bail.
Colin Saywell, headteacher at Baysgarth School, described the teenager as a "best friend to everybody".
He said: "[He was] held in high esteem and great affection and a lot of respect from those closest to him."
Humberside Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses.
The force said a neighbour had reported seeing a man and a woman in the area soon after the crash who were described as being of Eastern European origin.
A spokesman said: "Attempts to locate the couple have so far been unsuccessful and, as they may be able to give an account of the incident, police are keen to trace them."
