Two men have been arrested over a double shooting at a Liverpool pub.

The arrests came after two doormen were shot in the legs outside the West Derby Hotel at about 2215 BST on Sunday.

A 21-year-old received a wound to his right thigh, the other, aged 22, was wounded in his left calf. Both were treated in hospital for their injuries.

Merseyside Police arrested two men, aged 21 and 27 and from Stockbridge Village, but they have since been bailed as inquiries continue.

Police said two men, dressed in dark clothing and wearing balaclavas, approached the pub on Town Row and fired a number of shots at the doormen outside.

They said the offenders were seen running off into Croxteth Park after the attack.
