Police have said a car which crashed in Enniskillen in the early hours of Saturday had failed to stop for police shortly before it hit a roundabout.

BBC News NI reporter Julian Fowler visited the scene of the crash.

"The blue Ford Focus was travelling down the Cornagrade Road when it appears to have mounted the pavement and collided with a metal railing," he said.

"It then travelled across a traffic island before stopping in the middle of the roundabout."

Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

The Johnston Bridge roundabout at the junction with the Cornagrade Road, Queen Elizabeth Road, Queen Street and Halls Lane remain closed to traffic.
