Statement from Cllr Ben Curran on the shooting in Upperthorpe:

“I was very disturbed to learn about the incident in Upperthorpe last night. This is a sad event and not something that reflects the strong spirit within our community.”

“We will be working with the police to ensure the perpetrators of this crime are bought to book and to reassure local residents. I have already written to the Police requesting the increased presence in the area is sustained over the near future to provide reassurance for the local community.”

“Upperthorpe is fortunate to have organisations with a real interest in working with the community to prevent incidents like this from occurring in the future. Local councillors will be convening a meeting shortly with local community groups to consider next steps to help the community heal and to minimize the potential for future violence.”
