A gunman was shot and seriously injured by police yesterday as he attempted to kidnap a 16-month-old girl. The man, 30, who was wheeling the baby along a road in a pushchair, opened fire when he was confronted by armed officers in Enfield, north London. He hit one officer in the leg before being shot himself.

Armed police were called by the baby's mother who said the girl was abducted on Christmas Day. The girl, who was unhurt, was later reunited with her mother.
