ONE PERSON was killed and nine injured last night when a car ploughed into a wall and then a crowd outside a Birmingham nightclub.

The West Midlands Ambulance Service said the accident happened outside the Dome club in the city centre. A spokesman said: "The scene is complete carnage and we're doing everything we can to help. It seems the car ploughed into a wall and then into pedestrians who may have been queuing to go to the club."

Fire engines were also called to the scene. A spokesman said the deceased was a male pedestrian. Cutting equipment was used to free a male driver from the car which ploughed into the pedestrians; another car was believed to have been involved in an original collision.

Peter Kenney, who was at the nearby White Lion pub, said: "I've never seen anything like it. One minute everything was normal and the next it was like a massacre."
