    Police are appealing for information after a man was shot in Clayton.

    Shortly before 2.45pm on Monday 7 May, police were called to reports of a man shot on Vale Street.

    A man in his late-teens was with his friends, when he was shot in the leg. He was taken to hospital for treatment for serious injuries.

    Detective Inspector Claire Moss of GMP’s City of Manchester Division, said: “People will understandably be concerned that someone has been shot in broad daylight on their streets, but I want to assure them we are doing all we can to get to the bottom of what happened.

    “We have increased patrols in the area and have a cordon in place, and I’d ask people to share any information that could help us identify the person responsible for such a violent attack with these officers.

    “On such a warm bank holiday, people will have been in the area and someone out there will have the detail we need to hold the offender to account.”
