A teenager has admitted killing one of his best friends after setting fire to a car in which he was sleeping.
The body of Ryan Morrell, who was 18, and from Melton Mowbray, was found inside the burnt out vehicle in the village of Frisby-on-the-Wreake by firefighters in July last year.
The teenager had earlier attended the Fristock Music Festival with friends.
