A second man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a shooting near a pub in Newport.

Two people were hurt when pellets were shot from one car causing another vehicle to crash near the Cross Hands pub on Chepstow Road on Tuesday.

The arrest of the man, 22, from Newport comes as police continue to quiz a 24-year-old local man.

Two men aged 22 and 24 from Cardiff have been bailed on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.

One man suffered a head injury as a result of the pellets being fired, while another man had minor injuries from the crash.

Both were in the car that crashed along with a woman who hurt her back.

Police are looking for a dark coloured 4x4 vehicle seen driving along Chepstow Road and on to Beechwood Road at the time of the incident at 23:30 BST.

The force appealed for anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident or who has information to call 101.
