.css-14iz86j-BoldText{font-weight:bold;}A gunshot was fired through the letterbox of a north London home in what police described as a “terrifying” experience for those inside.

Det Con Lee James said it was “simple pure luck” no-one was injured.

“Whoever carried out this reckless act is clearly very dangerous and not afraid to use a deadly weapon,” he added.

The shot was fired at a home on Basing Way, Finchley, just after midnight on 14 September.

Anyone with information has been urged to contact the Met Police.
