Detectives have made a fresh appeal for information about the shooting of a man and his teenage daughter in north Belfast two weeks ago.

Harry Hayles, 47, and his 18-year-old daughter, Emma, were attacked at Evelyn Gardens, off the Cavehill Road, as he was taking her to school on 3 April.

The police have asked motorists if they remember seeing anything suspicious.

They want to trace the movements of a red van, believed to have been used by the gunmen.

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Little, who is leading the investigation, said: "This van was seen in the area prior to the attack and was later recovered after the shooting, having been set alight at Rosapenna Court."

A 33-year-old man who was arrested was later released on bail pending further enquiries.
