Protestors sit on Silverstone track after horror crash at British Grand Prix

Protestors stormed the track at Silverstone just moments after the huge crash during the opening lap of the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

Earlier this week, police warned of credible intelligence that a protest was planned for Sunday’s race and said any demonstration during the race would ‘jeopardise lives’.

A statement from FIA and F1 read: ‘We can confirm that after the red flag, several people attempted to enter the track.

‘These people were immediately removed and the matter is now being dealt with by the local authorities.’
