A burnt-out silver Audi A6 car believed to have been used in the attack was found at the Foxborough Estate.

It was fitted with false registration plates and a taxi plate.

Detectives are trying to establish if the attack was connected to a pub brawl between two gangs last September during which a man was killed.
