Detective Superintendent Esyr Jones said: “This was a violent and completely unacceptable incident, which has understandably caused alarm within the local community.

“This appears to have been an isolated incident involving local youths, all of whom can expect to find officers knocking at their doors as inquiries progress.”

He added: “We are continuing to appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information which could assist the investigation to come forward.

“In particular, I’d urge any parent who suspects their child was involved in any way to come forward.
