Nine people - including five children - were taken to hospital earlier today after a car overturned outside a primary school in Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.

The injured, also thought to include a lollipop lady, were taken to two hospitals following the collision which happened at around 8.50am.

The 61-year-old driver of the Audi involved was also among those injured, and is currently assisting South Wales Police with their investigation.

A force spokesman said it "was not believed to be a deliberate act".

Dr George Findlay from University Hospital of Wales gave ITV News an update on the condition of those still being treated, including a nine-year old girl in intensive care.

She's seriously ill in our intensive care unit, currently receiving treatment to try and reduce her injuries - but really it is a matter of time and taking things day-by-day.

This was a serious road traffic crash and the injuries are the kind of things you would expect - bone injuries and head injuries.

– DR GEORGE FINDLAY, UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL OF WALES

Two out of three people admitted with injuries to the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend have now been discharged.
