Two accused of driver murder bid


Man was injured while he sat in his taxi

Two men have been charged with attempted murder over a gun attack on a taxi driver in County Down last weekend.

The victim was shot as he sat in his car at Stirling Avenue in Newtownards early on Saturday 20 August.

He was said to be in a stable condition after the shooting. Police said it may have been linked to loyalist feuding.

The two men, aged 19 and 20, will appear before Newtownards Magistrates court on Friday.
