Husband and wife 'seriously hurt' in Norfolk shooting

A husband and wife suffered serious injuries when they were shot during a dispute between neighbours in Norfolk.

Police were called to the High Street, Nordelph, near Downham Market, where they found the couple, believed to be in their 60s, with firearms injuries.

They were treated at the scene, which was sealed off by officers, before being taken to hospital.

A 57-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and a shotgun was recovered from the scene.

The man suffered injuries to his hand and the woman suffered wounds to her torso.

The injuries are not believed to be life threatening, police said.

Supt Nick Davison said: "This appears to be a local dispute between two households who live along the same street and the incident was confined to these people."
