Gunshots fired at Mexborough pub

GUNSHOTS were fired in a drive-by attack at a Mexborough pub.

A car pulled up outside at Memories Sports Bar, on Bank Street, at around 11.10pm on Wednesday, August 9.

A shot was then fired into the doorway of the bar, before the car drove off. No-one was injured, but damage was caused to the inside of the venue.

Police have released an image of a green Mini, believed to have been involved in the shooting.

Officers appeal to anyone who recognises the Mini, or who was in the bar or the area at the time, to contact them on 101, quoting incident 1141 of August 9.
