A serious incident is unfolding in the Ardoyne area in north Belfast.

Police are currently at the scene.

A spokesperson for the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) said it received a 999 call at 8.16pm on Tuesday following reports of an incident in the area.

“NIAS despatched a rapid response paramedic and two emergency crews to the scene,” said a spokesperson.

“Following assessment and initial treatment two patients were taken to hospital in Belfast.”

North Belfast SDLP asked people not to share any speculation around what happened at the scene.

"We are aware that the PSNI are attending a major incident scene at Brompton Park,” the party tweeted. “Our thoughts are with the Ardoyne community at this time.

People Before Profit councillor Fiona Ferguson tweeted: “Devastating news from Ardoyne. All my thoughts are with the family involved and the community who are in a state of shock.

"Few situations are as difficult as this and local support is paramount. Would appeal for people to refrain from public speculation in respect for all involved.”
