Claims near Le Havre 28-29 July 1944

I can see no claims for any aircraft in the Le Havre area that night albeit a Do 217 came down at Goderville NE of Le Havre. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

I checked the claims made by Bomber Command but it seems nothing was from this area unless it was one of the aircraft claimed as damaged were I don´t have any position for the claim. Bomber Command claimed no less than 25 destroyed, 6 probables and 10 damaged enemy aircraft this night.

This was for a German bomber loss so unlikely it would have engaged RAF bombers but thanks anyway

The only other thought is flak, Allied or German

I have no means of checking ground claims but I cannot find an air to air that fits
