Residents living on The Strand were given a nasty shock after two vehicles - which eyewitnesses say were racing - crashed shortly after 8pm on Monday, April 12.

Alarming pictures from the scene show tyres and debris strewn across the road, garden walls reduced to rubble, and the front of a car smashed to pieces.

Police confirmed they were called at around 8.20pm, and two cars - potentially a SEAT Arona and a Peugeot - were involved.
