Police were called at around 5.15pm on March 11 to Bournemouth Road close to Rye Lane following reports of shots fired.

A 30-year-old woman suffering a gunshot wound was taken by ambulance to hospital where her condition remains stable.

Police say the woman was an innocent victim returning from a shopping trip when she was hit by a shot fired during a dispute between two men who fled separately from the scene.

Two men aged 19 and 20 were arrested by detectives in Ramsgate, Kent.

They have been bailed to late March pending further inquiries.
