Six people are now confirmed to have been injured, including three children.

One of the children is said to be in a critical condition.
There are unconfirmed reports that one child was stuck beneath the car.

An estimated 300 to 400 Muslim worshippers were at the college celebrating the end of Ramadan.

Armed police and the police helicopter were called to the scene, with the recent terror attack on a group of Muslim in Finsbury Park still fresh in people’s minds.

However, police have said they do not believe the crash is terror related, Chronicle Live reported.

A 42-year-old woman has been arrested, Northumbria Police said.
Video taken in the aftermath of the crash shows people in hi-vis jackets running towards the scene as police sirens wail in the background.

One witness told the paper: “There were lots of children there, people were gathering for prayers for Eid.

“My husband said he saw the car hit around six or seven people.”
Others who witnessed the crash said they believed it was an accident.

A statement tweeted by Northumbria Police said: “On Sunday June 25, at approx 9.14am, Northumbria Police received reports thata vehicle had collided with pedestrians outside of Westgate Sports Centre, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

“Police enquiries are ongoing to establish what exactly happened but, at this time, it is not believed to be a terror incident.
“Emergency stories are at the scene and five casualties have been confirmed.

“Police have arrested a 42-year-old woman who is currently in police custody.”
