Two lanes shut as police vehicle overturns on busy Belfast carriageway

Four police officers were taken to hospital on Tuesday evening after their Land Rover overturned on Belfast's Westlink.

A spokeswoman described the crash, which closed the busy carriageway from Broadway to Divis Street, as a "one-vehicle collision".

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service said they had taken the officers - one female and three male - to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

It added they were in stable conditions. Police said their conditions were not life-threatening.

The accident happened just after rush hour on Tuesday evening.

Belfast-bound traffic was diverted of the M1 onto Broadway Junction until the road was cleared.
