“We recognise the concern this will cause in the local community and want to reassure the public that, while no arrests have been made, investigations are ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident, and our officers are working hard to identify who is responsible.

“I would urge anyone who was in the vicinity of Queens Road between 9pm and 9.30pm last night who may have witnessed the incident, seen something suspicious or has information that could help with our investigation, to please get in touch.

“There will continue to be a heightened police presence in the area while our officers carry out their enquiries and a large police cordon remains in place in and around Queens Road which is likely to cause some disruption, so I’d like to thank local people and businesses for their cooperation and patience.”
