Around 1.30pm an Ulsterbus was turning at the top of Castle Lane junction to head back out of the town towards Portadown.

As the Ulsterbus driver waited at the junction the bus was hit from behind by a grey coloured car, possibly a Ford Focus.

Several pedestrians were in the area at the time and would be aware of the collision, said the PSNI.

The grey car appears to have reversed and drove away down Castle Lane, according to a police spokesperson.
