An 11-year-old world champion mini stock car driver who was seriously injured in a crash has died.

Keir Millar, from Lockerbie, was hurt in a race at Lochgelly Raceway in Fife on Saturday.

He was taken to hospital in Edinburgh and his family said tonight that he had since died.

In a statement issued through NHS Lothian they asked for space and time to grieve.

They said: “D ue to the injuries sustained in an accident at the weekend Keir has sadly passed away.

“We, as a family, request space and time to grieve in private.”

Keir took part in the Ministox racing series and last year won the Ninja Kart Championship in England.

A race at Lochgelly later this week has been cancelled out of respect.
