Swimmers and sunbathers in Kilkee, Co Clare had a lucky escape this afternoon, after a runaway car crashed onto a busy beach.

The unoccupied car rolled from its parking spot.

It then nose-dived down steps where around 50 people were enjoying the sunny weather.

No one was injured, and the car has since been removed from the beach.

Photos shared on social media showed crowds gathered around the vehicle before it was removed:
