A six-year-old boy is fighting for his life in hospital after he was hit by a car in Belfast.

The incident happened on North Queen Street close to the Westlink bridge on Monday at around 7.30pm.

A spokesman for the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service said that a crew attended the scene and the boy rushed to the Royal Victoria Hospital for emergency treatment.

On Tuesday, the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust confirmed that the boy remained in a critical condition.

A PSNI spokesman said: "Anyone who was on North Queen Street and witnessed the collision is asked to contact local police on the non emergency number 101."

Police closed the road following the accident last night and diversions were put in place.

It has since been reopened to traffic.
