    « We are aware of a number of injured people, but at the moment we are not in a position to say how many or how serious.

    « However, all emergency services are working together at the scene, and making sure that those who are injured receive medical care.

    « Work is still going on to establish what has happened, and could take some time before we are in a position to confirm anything.
