South Wales Argus: Councillor Chris Jenkins in Liverpool Street, Newport, where the incident happened Councillor Chris Jenkins in Liverpool Street, Newport, where the incident happened

UPDATE: 4.48pm

Victoria councillor Chris Jenkins, who lives opposite where the incident took place on Liverpool Street, said there is no reason for the local community to worry despite there being a “lot of police” at the scene.

Cllr Jenkins said: “It’s quite dramatic when you see an ambulance and five police cars there and the street being closed off. It’s a very quiet place so it’s a bit of a shock. “But it was very calm, there’s nothing for the community to worry about – it was one household where things got out of hand.”

She added: “It was very well handled by the police.” There are currently no police cars at the scene and the street is now opened as normal.

UPDATE: 4.17pm

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said the woman, who is in her thirties, sustained a head injury in the crash this afternoon.

There is no corner of Bristol Street and Liverpool Street -- those streets do not intersect anywhere!

Yet again the Argus gives the impression that no-one on it's staff has any geographical knowledge of Newport.Even when they include a map of the IMMEDIATE area they still get it wrong and the picture of the Councillor what on earth is that for,immaterial more so with the mistake in the story just a spacefiller.

Given there has been an accident, is it wise for a councillor to have a photo taken in the middle of the road where someone has just been seriously injured. Time to engage brain, I think.
