An 18 year-old man has been arrested in Nicosia after losing control of his car and smashing into four teenage girls standing in front of a supermarket wall in Lakatamia.

The girls were taken to Nicosia hospital. Two of the four needed surgery and the other two were treated at A&E, police said.

One of the girls is in critical condition and had to have her left leg amputated. A second suffered fractures to her legs, ribs and pelvis.
