Six people have been taken to hospital after a car crashed in to pedestrians outside a sports centre in Newcastle, the ambulance service has said. A spokesman said three children and three adults are being treated at the Royal Victoria Infirmary for injuries sustained in the collision, which police said is not believed to be terror-related.

An event was taking place nearby at the Newcastle Central Mosque to celebrate Eid, which marks the end of Ramadan. A 42-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the incident, which happened outside Westgate Sports Centre at around 9.14am.

A North East Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We received our first 999 call at 9.15 this morning to report a car that had mounted the kerb.

"We have taken six people to hospital, they have gone to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, three children and three adults."
