Gardaí are investigating the circumstances behind a suspected deliberate ramming incident in Newtownforbes this afternoon.

A man and woman are currently in custody and being questioned by detectives after the incident which occurred at Lamagh at around 3pm.

Ironically, shortly afterwards a second collision occurred which gardaí are also presently dealing with and which has resulted in the closure of the road on the Longford side of the village.
