Jim Clark Rally Deaths, The bodies of three spectators killed when a rally car ploughed into them were being removed by police on Sunday as questions were raised about safety procedures.

Iain John Provan, 64, Elizabeth Allan, 63, and John Leonard Stern, 71, all from greater Glasgow, died during the Jim Clark Rally on Saturday in the Scottish Borders. Six others were injured, including two critically, after two accidents within two hours on the closed-road course in the Duns and Kelso areas.

As a police investigation began, the organisers of the rally extended their condolences and sympathy to the families and friends of those affected. They said the event was “as safe as possible”.

Alan Johnstone, media manager for the rally, said: “This is the first fatality we have had and it’s been one very bad day.” He told ITV news: “We try our level, level best to get it as safe as possible. You’ll never get it 100% by its very nature.”

The deaths occurred in the second crash at about 4pm at Little Swinton, near Coldstream, when a rally car came off the road and ploughed into spectators.
