Ambulances have been involved in two separate road crashes in Northern Ireland.

One vehicle, which was transporting a patient to hospital, was sent into a spin after colliding with a car close to Portrush at about 8.50am.

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) said the crew and patient were being treated for non-life threatening injuries at the Causeway Hospital in Coleraine.

Earlier, another NIAS vehicle was involved in a collision on the Shore Road, Whiteabbey. No-one was seriously hurt, but the occupant of a car was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital for treatment.

NIAS said the crew had been left shaken and were given a period of "downtime".
