Three police officers and another man were injured in a crash in north Belfast involving a PSNI car responding to an emergency.

The collision happened on Shankill Parade on Saturday after 10pm and led to the closure of parts of the Shankill Road.

Reports suggested that the windows on the PSNI were damaged and one of its front passenger doors appeared to be missing after the crash happened.

In a statement, a police spokesman said the collision involved "a car and a police vehicle which was responding to an emergency".

Police later said: "Three police officers and another man were taken to hospital for their injuries, which are not believed to be serious".

The road was later re-opened.
