Police investigate 19 car pile-up

Police are appealing for information after a multi-car collision during a rally in Dalby Forest.

During the TrackRod Rally Yorkshire on 26 September 2014, a pile of woodchips which was being used as a braking marker ahead of a corner was covered up with tree branches.

With the braking marker hidden from view the drivers had no indication of the upcoming corner and 19 cars came off the track.

Fortunately, nobody was injured in the incident.

Officers believe that the braking marker may have been deliberately covered up to cause a collision which people could film and are trying to establish whether any criminal offences have been committed.

The police are urging witnesses to come forward and anyone who saw the collision may have information that can help the investigation.

Christine performed the honours at the opening of the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

It's been built to replace an outpatient haematology and chemotherapy unit at the hospital, which wasn't large enough to meet a growing need.

The centre also means many patients in Harrogate no longer have to travel to Leeds or York for treatment.
