A lorry has ploughed into a Christmas market in the centre of Berlin leaving various people injured, according to reports.

The market is situated at Breitscheidplatz near the Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church.

Video footage appears to show people lying injured on the ground, although there are as yet no clear details about the number of injuries.

It is also unclear whether or not the event was accidental, although one witness cited by CNN said "it didn't feel like it was an accident."
