M-Sport driver Henning Solberg has retired from Wales Rally GB this morning due to a fuel leak.

Henning was forced to stop on the road section after SS19, the 10.04 km run through Alwen 1.

"Unfortunately Henning will go no further today. It looks like a fuel leak so the team have decided to retire the car on safety grounds," M-Sport tweeted.
