Four PSNI officers injured as vehicles rammed in Armagh

Four PSNI officers have been injured after their vehicles were rammed in south Armagh last night.

Police on patrol on Finnegans Road, Jonesborough, were alerted to a silver Ford Transit van at around 11.45pm last night.

The van rammed the first police vehicle, forcing it off the road, and two officers sustained minor injuries. The van then continued onwards colliding into another PSNI vehicle, further injuring two more officers.

A 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of several offences, including handling stolen goods, dangerous driving, failing to stop for police and driving without insurance.
