An investigation launched after a driver was shot at by a passenger in a passing car has been closed, police have revealed.

The victim was travelling along Buxton Road in Spixworth at around 1.15pm on December 16, when a small object was fired through the open window of his car and went out through the opposite window.

It is believed that the object came from an air weapon or imitation firearm fired by a man in a passing car.

Call police on 101.
