On Thursday, December 1 at 3am police were called to a house on Lucas Road to reports of gun shots being fired.

After an appeal that was released last week officers would now like to trace the driver of a white van that was seen on Lucas Road between 1am and 1.30am.

The van is thought to have writing on the side. A passenger got into the van and drove away in the direction of Sheffield Road.
