Builth Wells - French rally superstar Sebastien Loeb was forced out of the Wales Rally GB, the final race of the season, here on Sunday after having an accident between the 18th and 19th special stages.

The 37-year-old - crowned world champion for the eighth time on Friday when nearest rival Mikko Hirvonen crashed out - was lying in second overall in his Citroen behind Finnish driver Jari-Matti Latvala when the accident occurred.

"The radiator was damaged but we are going to try and repair the car so that it can mount the podium in Cardiff," said a Citroen spokesperson.
