A car crashed into a convoy carrying the prime ministers of the UK and Belgium today, injuring two police officers in what appears to have been an accident.


The convoy was leaving a British military graveyard where Theresa May and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel had been laying wreaths to soldiers who died in World War One, Reuters reported, citing local media.

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Michel described the event as an "unfortunate accident".

The car reportedly knocked down two police officers on motorbikes who had been escorting the convoy. The pair have been taken to hospital and no one else was injured, La Libre Belgique said.

May was in Belgium ahead of Sunday's centenary commemorating 100 years since the end of World War One.
