Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has said it is a "black day" for Scotland and its Borders after three people were killed, and another six injured at the Jim Clark motor rally.
This is desperately sad and difficult news from the Borders of the tragic circumstances that have occurred at the Jim Clark Rally.
The Jim Clark Rally is a long-standing event of over 40 years. It is much loved in the Borders and by the rally driving community who I know will share in our sadness at what is a black day for the Borders and for Scotland.
