A man has been struck by glass after at least one gunshot was fired in Haringey, north London, Scotland Yard has said.

Haringey Police were called just after 10pm when at least one shot was fired in Westbury Avenue near Turnpike Lane, Wood Green.

The man who was hit by glass did not require hospital treatment.

Staff at a nearby takeaway said they had heard the gunshots and saw a car speeding from the scene.

One witness told the PA news agency: "We were very busy at the time and we heard a noise like car tyres bursting.

"We heard four or five shots and saw a car drive off really fast.

"There was a bus turning right in the cross hatchings on the junction so the way ahead was blocked.

"The car turned left."

The staff said they could not tell if shots had been fired from the car or if the car had been the target.

This is the third shooting in the London borough this week. On Tuesday a 46-year-old woman was left in a critical condition after a shooting in Wood Green, just 12 hours earlier officers were called to Lansdowne Road, Tottenham where a man had been shot.
