A man is in a stable condition in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast after being dragged along the road during a van hijacking on the outskirts of south Belfast.

The incident happened around 2.10pm on Friday at the Old Milltown Road area of Castlereagh where the male driver of a white Transit van was approached by an unknown man demanding his vehicle and money.

As the driver tried to get out of the van, the hijacker sped off dragging him along the road.
