Subject: Rally driver Colin McRae is feared dead in crash

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/16/07 at 2:51 am

From BBC News Online (full report):

Former world rally champion Colin McRae is believed to have been killed along with three others in a helicopter crash near his home in Lanarkshire.

The helicopter, which police believe was owned by Mr McRae, 39, came down on Saturday afternoon in Jerviswood, about a mile from Lanark, and caught fire.

Strathclyde Police said Colin McRae, a keen pilot, is thought to have been on board with three others.

However formal identification of those killed still has to be carried out.

Strathclyde Police said the damage to the Squirrel aircraft was so bad it was initially unclear how many people had died.

A police statement said: "Around 1610 BST on Saturday, 15 September 2007, emergency services were called to a helicopter crash in Jerviswood, east of the A73 at Lanark.

"There are no survivors."

Hundreds of people are expected to line the streets of Lanark to pay tribute to former World Rally champion Colin McRae, who died two weeks ago.

A "celebration of life" service is to be held for Mr McRae, 39, who died with his five-year-old son Johnny, and two family friends, in a helicopter crash.

The memorial service is due to get under way at St Nicholas Church in Mr McRae's home town at 1600 BST.

It will be relayed to large screens erected on the high street.
