Neighbours have spoken of their fear after a man was shot in the stomach in a Leytonstone street.

Police were called to Trinity Close following reports of a 22-year-old man with gunshot wounds at around 11pm on Tuesday.

A 42-year-old woman, who did not want to be named, said: “There was loads of commotion. There was a car parked up and I could hear people saying ‘someone’s got shot’."

“There was a girl, she was screaming."

The man is in hospital in a serious but stable condition, and a 23-year-old man has been arrested.
