He might have been shot (or bolted) any time in the evening according to the report.

Some crossbows on sale are as effective as rifles, the mass x velocity equation rarely makes a mistake.

Best catch the owner and put him on target watch.

Terrible news seems like a nice peaceful area is nowhere safe today from crazy people,
I hope he pulls through.

Just goes to show that it ain't the guns that kill people, it's the idiots pulling the trigger that kill people... :-doh

I'm surprised that the unit treating him was in Stoke. That's got to be a three hour journey unless he was helicoptered there.

UHNM Stoke is a major trauma centre covering a pretty wide area.

Mr Corrigan was at Stoke having first been treated at Bangor.

Well, the hospital outside of Bangor (is it still called the C&A?) has a helipad so a helicopter could have been involved both arriving and departing.

Thanks to this article, villains up and down the country will be ditching their getaway Jags sharpish.

At 22:04 a single car door was opened and closed. After two lights came on in the house, the car left.


Clever telemetry indeed catching all of that.

31 years as a minimum inside.

Good on the judge and jury, though why should the taxpayer cover the bills ?

31 years? That'll translate to 3 years locked up & then released for "good behaviour"...
