Newtown was awash with world rally champions and fans today as the Wales Rally GB entered the town.

While traffic congestion was caused throughout the day in and around the town, the economic impact is said to have outweighed the problems.

Hundreds of fans descended on the town to see famous rally drivers and those taking part in the National Rally enter the town where vehicles were serviced in the Back Lane car park before heading off from Broad Street for some more forest stages.

Yesterday, Cllr Joy Jones said that while it did cause problems for congestion, the benefits outweighed these, placing Newtown on the international sporting map again.
