Six people injured after a car was driven into a crowd in north Manchester, U.K.


A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) described four of them as ‘walking wounded’. Police were called to the car park between Asda and Harpurhey Market shortly after 3.30pm on Monday afternoon. An 80-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving but police say the incident is not terror-related.

The scene of the incident

The air ambulance and six terrestrial ambulances were called at the scene. The arrested man was also injured. A cordon was put in place around a large section of the car park for several hours. It has been later taken down from outside the market and most of the emergency vehicles have left. „Our investigations at the scene will continue for some time and there will be disruption to people in the local area but we need to make sure we get every piece of evidence possible to build a full picture of the circumstances. It’s quite a busy area so if anyone saw anything but has not yet been in contact with us, please make sure that’s the next thing you do,” Sergeant Brian Orr, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said.
