Police said the car was found abandoned and three men were in custody in connection with the incident.

“There was a woman and a child, they were a bit shaken up,” Mandy Neville, who was working in a shop near the market when the incident occurred, told the newspaper. “The woman said that she had hurt her leg. She didn’t know if something had hit her in the leg when the car crashed, but no one was really hurt.”


He added: “We brought the lad here and gave him a drink. He was pretty shaken up. He was just a young lad, I think about 10 years old.”
