In June, a gun was fired at a house in Wostenholm Road in one of three linked incidents in a night of mayhem in the city.

On that same night a man was attacked at Paddy Power bookmakers on London Road and another man was assaulted at Adnan's takeaway on the corner of West Street and Rockingham Street in the city centre.
