A car crashed into a crowd of worshippers outside an Islamic centre, police said.
According to Daily express, the crash took place at approximately 12.35am BST on Wednesday outside the Al-majlis Al-Hussaini Islamic centre.
After crashing into the crowd, the motorist drove away.
Police confirmed two people reporting non life-threatening injuries were taken to hospital for treatment.
Confirming officers are investigating, a police spokesperson said: “Officers are currently retaining an open mind regarding the cause of the collision.
They added: The hate crime aspect of the collision is being looked at by detectives as an aggravating factor."

A spokesperson for the Hussaini Association, which had been holding a series of lectures at the mosque, said: "We are in deep shock at such an attack taking place on our community but remain proud to live in a diverse and tolerant society and as such we remain unintimidated and encourage all to continue to attend the Majlis (gathering) of Hussein - a man who defied a tyrant to deliver a message of love, unity and patience which we remember to this day."
