WRC driver Craig Breen’s Wales Rally GB came to a rather abrupt and crashy end on day one after sliding his Citroen DS3 WRC into a ditch during SS5.

His car dug into the ground after sliding off-road as he negotiated a fast left-hander and rolled several times, before landing on its side.

The damage to his Citroen, unsurprisingly, proved to be too much and he was forced to retire from his home rally.
