A man has been shot in a paramilitary-style attack in Co Antrim.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland said it received a report at 10.20pm last night that three men forced their way into a house in the Stranocum area and shot a man in his arms and legs.

The PSNI said: "We are treating this brutal shooting as a paramilitary-style attack.

"This is despicable and should not happen in a civilised society."

Police have begun an investigation and have urged anyone with any information to contact them.
