Strathclyde police have confirmed that there are no survivors in the crash involving Colin McRae's helicopter but said the fatalities will not be formally identified today.


According to reports, two people have been killed when the helicopter burst into flames and crashed in McRae's estate at Jerviswood, Lanarkshire, in Scotland.


"Around 1610 hours on Saturday, 15 September 2007, emergency services were called to a helicopter crash in Jerviswood, east of the A73 at Lanark," the police said in a statement.


"There are no survivors.


"It is not known how many people were on board at this time and there will be no formal identification of anyone on board this evening.


"The air accident investigation team are en route to establish the cause of the crash."


If its true, its a huge loss for the rally world, and an absolute shame, he was a great driver and personality.
