She added: “This isn’t the first time it’s happened around here and I know the police are stretched but the police presence around the area is rubbish, it lasts a couple of days then nothing, leaving these scum bags to crawl back out of the woodwork to continue with their gun crimes.

It led to a public meeting attended by local MP Louise Haigh, Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Billings and police and council representatives.
