Officers attended and "found evidence consistent with a firearms discharge".

Items have been recovered and are being forensically examined.

Detective Chief Inspector Jaz Khan, of the Force Firearms Prevent Team, today said: "Officers are continuing CCTV and house to house enquiries.

"I believe this to have been a targeted attack and appeal directly to the victims to come forward and speak the us. We have specialist officers on standby to offer support and safeguarding measures.

"I also appeal to anyone who was in the area around Dalton Fold Road on Saturday evening who may have seen a black Ford Mondeo in the area at the time of the incident to come forward. I would also appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information to speak to police.

"People can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously. Enquiries are continuing."

No victims have yet come forward. A near-by property sustained some damage during the incident. No one is believed to be injured.
