Pop star Rita Ora just missed being caught up in drive-by shooting after an armed gang opened fire in Notting Hill just minutes after she walked by. Shots were fired in Notting Hill shortly after the former X Factor judge had been in the area visiting friends.

The singer had been out enjoying the sunshine near to Colville Gardens, but just a couple of minutes after she passed by the sound of gunfire was heard in the residential street. Armed police officers then rushed to the scene shortly after 2pm to reports of “shots fired”.

Police confirmed that detectives from the Trident and Command Area Crime Command are investigating the incident.
