Here’s more from the Independent:
Police said the collision outside the Westgate Sports Centre around 9.14am is not believed to be terror-related.
An eight-year-old boy is said to have been critically injured, the BBC reports.
A 42-year-old woman has been arrested and is currently in police custody.
Footage from the scene showed members of the public running towards the scene of the crash amid the sound of shouts and screams.
Hundreds of people were at the sports centre to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The six injured people were taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary.
Here’s what it looked like right after the accident:
