Police were last night investigating after a car crashed into the walls of two houses in the lower Falls area of west Belfast.

The vehicle is reported to have initially struck a number of cars on the Springfield Road just after 1.10pm yesterday before it then crashed into the garden walls of two properties at Lisvarna Place.

The car believed to have been involved - a silver Peugeot 206 - was discovered on fire on Ross Road just before 1.30pm.

Inspector David McBride said: "“While I would like to thank the public who have already come forward and given us information about these incidents, I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the car being driven erratically or either of the collisions, to contact police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 598 07/05/18."
