A man remains in a "serious but stable" condition after being shot at a travellers' site in Cambridgeshire.

The 41-year-old was taken to hospital following an incident in Oxney Road, Peterborough, shortly after 10:00 BST on 17 September.

Two other men, aged 43 and 46 who also sustained serious gunshot wounds, have since been released.

Police confirmed two of the injured men are brothers and were believed to be visiting the site.

People living at the site told BBC Look East's Sally Chidzoy the three injured men were shot in caravans.

"The travellers are loath to go on camera... but those that have spoken to us say it's clear to them that this was a grudge attack," she added.

Following the incident officers removed evidence from the scene, including a car with gunshot damage.

A spokeswoman from Cambridgeshire Police said: "This is being treated as an isolated incident and investigations are ongoing to establish who is responsible for this shooting and what the circumstances are behind it."
