A car crashed into a property in south Belfast yesterday, destroying a surrounding wall.

Police said no-one was injured in the collision, which happened shortly before 4.20pm at Kimberley Street in the Ormeau Road area. 

The impact caused a back yard wall to partially collapse.

Independent councillor Declan Boyle said: “We are very fortunate that no-one was seriously injured, or worse, as a result of this crash. This is a residential area and we could have been looking at a tragedy here. Thankfully that was not the case.”
