FOUR young people have been arrested after a ‘drive-by shooting’ stunt backfired and led to armed police being deployed on a South Yorkshire estate, writes Russ Newton.

The drama unfolded late on Wednesday night, at about 11.40pm, when police were called to reports of a vehicle pulling up on Sprotbrough Road, Doncaster.
