Woman hurt in drive-by shooting
A woman was shot in the chest when gunmen opened fire outside the venue of a music awards ceremony.

The victim was hit as several shots were fired from a car driving past the Barbican Exhibition Centre in the City of London on Wednesday morning.

Police said the woman, aged 24, was a passer-by and had not been attending the Urban Music Awards which had been held at the venue.

Three men have been arrested and a handgun was found at the scene.

Doctors have said they believe the injured woman will survive.

Chiswell Street was closed for most of Wednesday while forensic experts searched the area.
