A stolen car plunged into a row of shops on the Falls Road in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Two shops were damaged in the incident which took place at around 7am on Sunday morning.

A PSNI spokesman said a black coloured Ford Ecosport caused damage to the shutters and front of a chemist shop and a bakery on Falls Road.

The vehicle, that had been reported stolen in a creeper burglary in the Beechview Park area of west Belfast a short time earlier, has now been recovered by police for further examination.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incidents or anyone who has any information about that can assist with the investigation to contact officers at Woodbourne Police Station on 101.
