Two men and one woman have been arrested after a collision in Newcastle city centre.

At around 4.36pm this afternoon (Friday) police received a report of a stolen Audi A3 motor vehicle in Gateshead.

Police attended the area but officers lost sight of the vehicle as it made its way into Newcastle city centre.

A short time later police received a report that the Audi had been involved in a collision with another vehicle on Market Street.

Officers attended and those involved - two men aged 37 and 31 and a 27-year-old woman - were arrested.

They remain in police custody and enquiries into the incident are ongoing.

Nobody was seriously injured in the collision but the road was closed in both directions for a short period of time.

The road has since been fully re-opened and traffic is beginning to clear in the area.

Anyone who saw the incident, or has information that may help police, should call 101 quoting reference number 636 18/11/16.
