Several cars and shop fronts have been damaged, after a car collided with a number of parked vehicles in Crossgar on Monday.

The incident happened just after 4:45am on Downpatrick Street in the village.

Two men were taken to hospital for their injuries.

Reacting to the crash, local councillor Cathy Mason said the incident caused significant damage to a local business.

Councillor Mason said: "The local community have been left shocked by what happened.

“Its a miracle that neither the occupants of the vehicle, nor local residents were killed following in this reckless incident.

“There is absolutely no place for this type of behaviour in our society; and those responsible must now face the full rigour of the law.”
