Police have released a CCTV image of two young women they believe may have vital information about a man who was shot on a street in Bedworth last month.

The victim was with two other men when he was shot in the Warwickshire town on the evening of 26 June.

He was attacked near Dark Lane but managed to make his way to Smorrall Lane, half a mile away where he collapsed.

He was rushed to hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Police have now released a still image of two young women who may have information about the shooting.

Detective Inspector Collette O’Keefe, of Warwickshire Police, said: "The women pictured were walking on Smercote Close shortly after the shooting and we believe they may have information that could be vital to our investigation.
