    Emergency services have been called to the Asda at Harpurhey shopping center in North Manchester after a car hit a crowd of people, according to the Mirror newspaper.

    Six people have been seriously injured, according to a spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) in Manchester. 

    Police say the incident is not terror-related.

    "Shortly before 3.30pm today (Monday 16 April 2018), police were called to reports that a Kia Venga had been involved in a collision with two cars and a number of pedestrians at a car park in a supermarket in Harpurhey. Five pedestrians have been taken to hospital for treatment. An 80-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. Inquiries into the full circumstances around this incident are ongoing," Greater Manchester Police said in a statement.
