A man who lives in nearby Mauveine Gardens, who did not want to give his name, said:

It’s the shock of something like this happening so close to home. You don’t expect it to happen here.

Video from the scene

Footage shows a heavy police presence remains at Hibernia Road.

From the scene

Mo Zaman was walking from his mum’s house to his dad’s in Hibernia Road this morning. He said:

I was stuck for 40-50 minutes because the roads were sealed off. There was a huge police presence here this morning. But less so now.

There were two riot vans earlier. A larger area was sealed off too.

It’s a rough area and I’m not too surprised by this.

It can be a worry and I think neighbours are concerned.

Road remains closed

Our reporter says that Hibernia Road remains closed, and the residents are being signed in and out to gain access.

A forensic tent has been put up near the junction with Grove Road.
