Nascar Daytona multi-car crash [00:52]
At least 28 fans have been injured in a multi-car crash during a Nascar race at Daytona in the US state of Florida. Large pieces of debris - including a tyre - flew into the spectator stands when one of the cars hit a fence separating the track from the seats. Race officials said 14 people had to be treated in hospital. The accident happened on the eve of the Dayton 500 - one of the most famous Nascar events. The officials later said the main race would go ahead. The President of Daytona International Speedway, Joie Chitwood, and Nascar's Steve O'Donnell addressed a press conference 'Freaky' The crash happened on the last lap of the second-tier race in Daytona as the cars approached the chequered flag. The driver in the leading car apparently tried to stop others overtaking him by moving sideways. One vehicle then hit another and flew into the fence. Pieces of debris were thrown into the stands and smoke from burning engines clouded the area. "It was freaky," fan Rick Harpster told the Associated Press news agency. "I saw a tyre fly straight over the fence into the stands. I knew it was going to be severe." Another eyewitness described people running and seeing a girl completely covered in engine oil. The race was earlier stopped for about 20 minutes following a separate accident in which one driver was injured. The crash happened on the last lap of the race Continue reading the main story Related Stories Patrick starts Daytona 500 on pole Formula 1 returns to United ...

Grand National Fences To Be Made Safer. [02:11]
Fences at this year's Grand National are being made safer in the biggest change in the history of the race. They are among a number of measures aimed at dealing with accusations of animal cruelty after eight horses died in the last decade. Last year the joint favourite and Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Synchronised had to be put down after falling at fence six of the Grand National - the infamous Becher's Brook - and continuing riderless until suffering leg fractures. The death, along with that of outsider According to Pete, who was brought down at the same fence on the second circuit, led to calls from animal welfare groups for the Grand National to be banned. The new fences are still covered in spruce but wooden posts have been replaced by a softer material known as "plastic birch". Aintree racecourse manager Andrew Tulloch described the birch as "horse friendly", telling Sky News "safety at Aintree is always our top priority for riders and horses and it's something we do not stand still on". He said the changes should make the Grand National safer but not any easier, insisting the fences will remain the same height. "The outward appearance of these fences will remain the same. "The big change here is that traditionally where they had a timber frame to them that timber frame has been replaced by a plastic, more forgiving, birch and on top of that birch there's a minimum of fourteen, maybe even sixteen inches of spruce and the spruce is what the horses can knock off," he ...
