A teenage rally driver has vowed to carry on racing despite suffering a near-miss in a competition which claimed three lives.

Georgia Shiels, 18, and co-driver Tom Woodburn,19, lost control of their rally car, which turned on its roof after clipping a tree stump during a major rally in Kelso, Scotland.

The pair’s miraculous escape came a day before the 44th Jim Clarke Rally was cancelled after three spectators were killed.
