Lewis Hamilton and other racing drivers have sent their condolences to the family of a volunteer steward at Brands Hatch, who died after being struck by an out of control car.

The incident occurred at a British Automobile Racing Club car championship event at the Kent racing track on Saturday afternoon, with Kent police called to the race track.

There were found to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, which has affected the British racing community.

The British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) wrote that the organisation was "saddened to confirm that as a result of an accident that occurred during a race meeting at Brands Hatch circuit today, a volunteer marshal tragically lost their life.

 "On behalf of everyone connected with the BARC, we are devastated by loss of one of the amazing volunteer marshal community who do so much to enable the sport to take place.

"Our thoughts and best wishes are with the family and friends of all those involved."

"Devastated to hear of the passing of a marshal at the Brands Hatch Circuit," Hamilton wrote on social media.

"These volunteer marshals are what makes racing possible, they are heroes. My heart is with his family."

"The race meeting was immediately suspended and Motorsport UK, together with the event organiser, has begun a full investigation into the circumstances of the incident.

"The thoughts of everyone at Motorsport UK are with the marshal's family, the organisers of the event, and other members of the motorsport community who were present."
