Two Boys, Aged 12 And 15, Rushed To Hospital After London Shooting

The horrifying violence in London has continued, as two boys, aged 12 and 15, were taken to hospital after being shot in broad daylight.

The Evening Standard reports that emergency services arrived at Wealdstone High Street in Harrow, north-west London this afternoon. The 15-year-old boy was found on the floor with a gunshot wound, before a search found the 12-year-old nearby with similar injuries.

It's not yet clear how serious their injuries are, but it's a continuation of violent crimes in the UK's capital.
