A cordon remains in place at the scene and officers are patrolling the area.

Detective Superintendent Brian Hobbs, investigating, said: “Although the shooting happened in the middle of the night, it happened on a busy road and there will have been witnesses who may have seen or heard something.

“I would urge anyone with any information, who hasn’t already contacted police, to contact us urgently.
