The shooting of a man in a south-west London street is being investigated by Scotland Yard's Trident gang squad.

The 25-year-old was shot in the leg on Alderney Street, Pimlico, at about 21:30 GMT on Wednesday.

He was taken to hospital for treatment where he remains, although his leg injuries have been described as "not life threatening".

The Met said a man had been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and possession of a firearm.

The force added a group of men were seen running away from the area following the shooting and anyone with information should contact them.
