Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was shot in Bootle on Wednesday.

It's thought the 25 year old victim was shot in the leg with a hand gun - before the offender ran away.

He's being treated in hospital.

I would urge members of the public who have any information, which could help us to take positive action against those involved in gun crime and make our streets safer, to pick up the phone and tell us what they know
