Spectator Tony Cowan told the BBC: ''It was just one car which lost control. It went sideways one way and then to the other side of the road and ploughed into four people.

''It was terrible, absolutely terrible. I ran to help but there was little I could do. The air ambulance arrived after about three quarters of an hour. There were police cars and ambulances. It was chaos, just chaos.''

Tommy Tait, wrote on Facebook: ''We must be like cats have nine lives never have we been so close to getting wiped out by a rally car our thoughts go out to the 4 who got hit.''
