    Belfast police received reports of a car crashing into a number of people on Whiterock Road shortly after 12 p.m. local time (11 a.m. GMT).

    The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has reported that two men were injured in a collision outside the city cemetery in West Belfast.

    "The extent of their injuries is unconfirmed at this time", a PSNI spokesman stated.

    The motives of the man remain unknown.

    ​The man that drove into the crowd has already been arrested by PSNI officers, according to the spokesman.

    No further information has yet been given by the police.

    Belfast City Cemetery was opened on 1 August 1869 as a cross-denominational burial ground for the people of the fast-growing Victorian town at the time.
