A man suffered an injury after a car was driven down a seafront in Wales.

Footage showed people fleeing as a motorist drove down the promenade in Marine Terrace, Ceredigion, in Aberystwyth at approximately 4.50am on Saturday.

Several pedestrians managed to avoid getting run over but one man appeared to be hit after the vehicle reversed when he was seemingly trying to stop the driver.

The car eventually came to a stop close to the pier.

During the incident, two other men seemed to be wielding large objects as weapons and trying to prevent people from stopping the car.

Emergency services were later called to the scene and three men were arrested for driving offences and on suspicion of affray.

They remain in police custody.

A man was also taken to hospital with minor injuries.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman said: "At approximately 4.50am on Saturday, October 5, Dyfed-Powys Police received reports from members of the public of a disturbance in the Marine Terrace area of Aberystwyth near bars and a nightclub.

"The reports then also stated that a dark green car was driving erratically and dangerously in the area, and that it had possibly collided with some pedestrians and the pillar of a shelter on the prom.
