Nine people have been taken to hospital after what the authorities are calling a 'serious accident' outside Rhoose primary school.

4 children and 2 adults were taken to the Heath Hospital in Cardiff, where a 9 year old girl is being treated at an intensive care unit.

Meanhwile 2 adults and 1 child were taken to Princess of Wales hospital in Bridgend. 1 adult remains there in a stable condition but 1 child and an adult have been discharged this afternoon. 

An Audi car overturned outside the School just before 9 o'clock, when parents were dropping their children off.

Pupil Ellie Stuart was nearby:

" There was a massive crowd of people around it...Everyone was screaming and crying. We didn't know what happened until two of my friends who were there told us."

The driver of the car, a 61 year old man, is helping police with their inquiries.

Police say they aren't treating the accident as a deliberate act.

The school stayed open all day and children were given support by a psychologist.

The road outside the school has now re-opened.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or who gave assistance following the collision is asked to contact the South Wales Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit by calling 101.
