A man has been injured in a shooting in Londonderry.

The 29-year-old was shot in the foot in Meenan Square in the Bogside area shortly after 20:30 GMT on Tuesday.

SDLP Foyle MLA Pat Ramsey, who has been speaking to the man's family, said his injuries were not life-threatening.

He said he believed the attack was carried out by dissident republicans. "No-one has the right to take the law into their own hands in so-called punishment shootings," he said.

"The people of this city will be alarmed by this news."
