E-FIT images have been release by police trying to find the men who abducted a man from his home in Dodworth, drove him to Scotland and left him for dead after shooting him in the knees.

Police Scotland say they are finally piecing together what happened to the 45-year-old man in March and it was a targeted attack.

Officers understand that the victim was assaulted by a number of men at his home in Strafford Walk, Dodworth and was then abducted by them.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Boyd said: "This shooting was a shocking incident, which occurred in broad daylight, yards from a busy town, homes and a supermarket

."This man was systematically assaulted, threatened and was in fear for his life. He has been left with life-changing injuries and may be unable to walk unaided again.

"We're still piecing together the timeline, mapping out the full journey which the attackers and the victim took and have carried out a significant amount of enquiries since the incident, which has included checking CCTV and speaking to local people in both Barnsley and East Kilbride.

"I appreciate the incident happened a number of months ago, however I would again like to take this opportunity to ask anyone who may have been in the area of Strafford Walk in the early evening of Wednesday 11th March into the early hours of Thursday 12th who may have heard anything suspicious, or who may have witnessed a number of men near the bungalow where the victim lived."

"The people who carried out this abduction and shooting are merciless, and have absolutely no regard for public safety. They have access to firearms as evidenced by this incident and have no hesitation in carrying out extreme violence.

"They are dangerous individuals and must be caught."
