A man has been rushed to hospital after reportedly being " shot twice in the street".

Great North Air Ambulance has confirmed an incident occurred around 5pm in Brotton Road, Carlin How, North Yorkshire, with neighbours reporting on social media the incident "had been a drive-by shooting" and that a man was "shot twice in the street".

Emergency services rushed to the scene and images shared online showed at least two ambulances and four police cars in the road.

Crime scene investigators are also at the scene.

The Great North Air Ambulance attended the scene, a spokesman confirmed.

They said: "I can confirm that we have attended an incident in the Carlin How area.

"We were on scene at 5.03pm with a doctor and paramedic.

"We treated a patient before accompanying them to hospital by road with the ambulance service."

A woman who lives in nearby Loftus has claimed "armed police are all over".

Motorists have been seen queuing on a road just outside the village, with a police van blocking the road.

A witness near the area has said the police helicopter is up.

A local told TeesideLive: “I didn’t see what happened. There was a lot of police and then the air ambulance appeared.

"Someone said someone had been shot and there were police with guns later but I didn’t see any."

Reports that the incident was a shooting are so far unconfirmed.
