Six injured as vehicle hits Muslim worshippers in Newcastle


One of the injured children is said to have been in critical condition. There is nothing to suggest that this is terror related.

Northumbria Police said inquiries were ongoing to establish exactly what happened, but it was not believed to be terror-related.

At least six people were injured on Sunday after a auto mounted a pavement outside a sports center in the northern English city of Newcastle, but the incident is not believed to be terrorism-related, police said on Sunday.

Six people are now confirmed to have been injured, including three children.

Events are taking place across the United Kingdom, with the largest of those, Eid in the Park, happening in Birmingham.

The police force said emergency services were at the scene and a 42-year-old woman has been arrested and is in police custody.

One eye witness told local media that a woman who had been at the prayer event was leaving the center in her auto when the vehicle suddenly went out of control.

The ambulance service spokesman said the first ambulance arrived on the scene within two minutes of the first 999 call.

"It caused a lot of panic; everyone was screaming when it happened, it wasn't the best of experiences".

The MP said: "So sad, I was at the prayers earlier and there were so much joy and unity. Thinking of those affected by what I am told was bad accident", she said.

Britain is on high alert following recent terror attacks involving vehicles.

The incident comes less than a week after one man died and others were injured when a man plowed a van into a crowd of worshipers leaving Ramadan prayers in Finsbury Park, London.
