The emergency services were called after 5pm on Sunday to the collision.

Police had also been called to Lincoln Road a few hours earlier as a large number of people celebrating Pakistan’s win in cricket’s Champions Trophy had caused “minor traffic disruption” according to a police spokeswoman.

The crowd soon dispersed, she added.
