Condemnation of Creggan Hill punishment shooting

There's been widespread condemnation of a paramilitary style shooting in Derry last night in which a man in his early twenties was shot in both ankles.

The man is recovering in hospital after the shooting which happened just before 7.30 last evening at a house in Creggan Hill.

A young mother and a group of children playing in the area at the time were threatened by the masked gunmen, before they made their getaway through a nearby alleyway to a waiting car.

Speaking this morning, local MLA Pat Ramsey said there is absolutely no place in Derry for guns or kangaroo courts...............
