A man has been arrested after a number of people were shot at - apparently by slingshots fired from a white van.

Between 12pm and 1.30pm on June 25, a van was sighted in the Woodley and Earley area, with at least two people inside.

Small objects were fired at members of the public from inside the van - and the police believe that the vehicle's occupants used slingshots.

Multiple attacks were reported, including in Crackhamwell Road, Woodlands Avenue, Beechwood Avenue and Wokingham Road.

A 19-year-old from Surrey has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
