Two cars - including a police car - have suffered damage to their vehicles. 

Katie Burns, an eyewitness, said: "It was like something out of the movies.

"I didn't see too much. What I saw was the fire engine and then saw some blue lights and a police car chasing another vehicle.

"The car on the right side then went up in the air.

"It was like something out of the movies. I've never quite seen anything like it."
