A police spokesman said another vehicle had also been involved in the accident.

Police officers were also called and took action to close one lane of the one-way system for safety reasons and direct traffic while the incident was dealt with.

A recovery vehicle arrived at the scene just before 11am to remove the damaged hatchback and the road is expected to reopen fully shortly.
