Pair shot at with air gun pellets
Two men have been shot at with an air gun as they walked through an area in Shropshire, police say.

The incident happened in Madeley on Thursday evening.

The men, aged 18 and 20-years-old, were walking along Ironbridge Road near to the Abraham Darby school when they were attacked.

Police say the pair suffered cuts which appear to have been caused by pellets from an air weapon. Detectives have appealed for witnesses to get in touch.
