The victim told police he was cycling around the grounds between 11.30pm and 12.30am on Monday when he was shot in the ankle.

Police said the shooting happened in or near Albany Street.

Officers were called to a north London hospital where staff were treating the 17-year-old – removing a bullet from his foot.

A police spokesman said: “His injuries were not life-threatening and he has been discharged from hospital.”

Since the shooting police have launched an appeal for information.
