A WOMAN has been charged with attempted murder after a man was shot in the buttocks just outside Whittington Park.

The park was closed after the shooting, in which a 36-year-old man was shot in the buttocks and back on July 22.

A cordon was also in place at the Wedmore estate where it is believe the man had been shot. He was taken to hospital by ambulance where his injuries were deemed not life-threatening.
