Serious Road Collisions, Jim Clark Rally

Police Scotland are investigating two road collisions at the Jim Clark Rally in the Scottish Borders this afternoon.

A serious incident occured around 4pm when a rally car came off the road near Kelso and collided with spectators.

Emergency services attended and three people were pronounced dead at the scene. The fourth person was conveyed to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and is in a critical conditions.

The Jim Clark Rally was stopped at that time.

An earlier incident occured at 2.05pm, when a rally car collided with five people. Four people were treated at the scene and one person was conveyed to hospital wher they are in a serious condition.

Police are in attendance at the scene and the investigation into both collisions is at an early stage.

P.S. And this is from me. Apparently my Twitter account has been hacked, most of you know me and will recognise this. As I said the Police have asked that no third party comment be made until they have concluded their initial investigations.
