A 30-year-old man is being treated in hospital after he was shot through both ankles in a paramilitary 'punishment-shooting'.

The attack happened in the early hours of this morning in Ballymagroarty.

Sinn Féin councillor Eric McGinley said: "Those behind this incident have nothing to offer the local community and need to stop these futile actions immediately.

"I would appeal for anyone with information on this shooting to bring it forward to the PSNI."
