A woman has been taken to hospital after being hit by a bus in Belfast City Centre.

Royal Avenue was closed on Thursday morning following the collision between a bus and a pedestrian.

It happened just before 9am involving a Metro 12 service (city bound) and a female pedestrian.

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service said the woman suffered a leg injury and has been taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

The NIAS spokesman said two other people who were on the bus sustained knee injuries.

A Translink spokeswoman said: "Emergency services were called to the scene and the pedestrian involved was taken to hospital.

"PSNI and Translink investigations are currently underway."

The road has since re-opened and traffic is flowing again however motorists should expect delays.
