Woman, 24, in hospital after shooting near north London party

A 24-year-old woman has been shot near a party in north London, police have revealed.

Officers were alerted by ambulance crews to reports of a shooting in the early hours of Tuesday 27 December at the junction of West Green Road and Grove Park Road, Tottenham.
