Three men have admitted being involved in the shooting of a man.

Paul Borg, 25, suffered wounds to his leg in Willington Quay, North Tyneside, in August in 2010.

Terry March and Michael Curran, both 30 and from Wallsend, admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent when they appeared at Newcastle Crown Court.

Philip Croney, 22, of Wallsend, admitted conspiracy to commit violent disorder. The case against Kelvin Croney, 28, of Hebburn, was dropped.

He had been charged with conspiracy to cause GBH with intent, but no evidence was offered by the Crown Prosecution Service.
