A man has been charged by police following a shooting in Wimbledon earlier this week.

A 23-year-old man was shot on Monday as armed police swooped to foil the robbery of a cash van.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police Flying Squad along with marksmen were lying in wait to stop the cash-in-transit raid outside a supermarket.
