TWO men were taken into custody on Christmas Day following a reported shooting in Athersley North.

Police launched a search for Nathan Harrod, 24, and Daniel Wogan, 22, following an incident at around 10pm last Friday outside a house in Wollaton Close in which a 31-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to his leg.

A large number of vehicles, including a helicopter, were deployed over the weekend as officers looked to track down the men.

Wogan handed himself in to police on Christmas Day, with Harrod arrested later the same day.

The victim was taken to Barnsley Hospital following the incident and underwent surgery. 

A police spokesman said the victim was expected to make a full recovery.
