The sister of former Formula One racing driver David Coulthard has been found dead at her home in Scotland.

Lynsay Jackson, who was married with an 8-month-old daughter, used to run the racing star's fan club and a museum in his home village of Twynholm, Kirkcudbrightshire.

Police said they were not treating Mrs Jackson's death as suspicious.

David Coulthard was appearing on BBC One's Saturday Kitchen when his sister's body had been discovered. He was informed of her death after the live program had ended.

Their parents, Joyce and Duncan Coulthard are said to be flying home from Australia where they were on holiday.

A police spokesperson told the BBC: "We can confirm that a 35-year-old woman was found dead in her home today in Crossmichael.

"Our inquiries into her death are ongoing at this time, but there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances and a report is being prepared for the procurator fiscal."

Mr Coulthard, 41, had 13 Grand Prix victories in a career which spanned 15 seasons from 1994-2008. In 2001 he came second in the drivers’ championship.

After retiring from Formula One he became a BBC commentator.
