Baby has lucky escape as car strikes pram in Belfast

A baby escaped without serious injury after its pram was struck by a car in Belfast.

The child was in the pram outside a Chinese takeaway on Cliftonville Road at about 19:00 BST when a car veered across the road and struck it.

The carriage on the top of the pram was thrown clear and landed some feet away on the pavement, with the baby inside.

A woman was knocked down and trapped under the vehicle as it struck the front of the takeaway.

Six people were taken to hospital with what were not thought to be life-threatening injuries.
