A man in his 30's has been shot in the ankles in Derry this morning.

The attack happened in the Ballymagroarty area just after 3.30am.

He's receiving treatment in hospital for his injuries.

The incident is one of several shootings in the north in recent days - including the murder of takeaway delivery driver Dan Murray in Belfast last Monday night.

Anyone with information on any of the incidents is asked to come forward.

On Wednesday, MI5 raised the threat level to Britain from Northern Ireland-related terrorism from moderate to substantial.
