One man has died and another is in hospital following a possible "firearm disturbance" in a Yorkshire village.

Officers were called to Melton near Hull at about 17:00 BST where they found two injured men, one of whom had serious wounds and died at the scene.

The second man was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary with non life-threatening injuries.

Three people have been arrested and a large area around Melton Old Road remains cordoned off.

A spokesman for Humberside Police said: "Police were called to a residential property in the Melton Old Road area of Melton at around 1700 hrs this evening following reports of a disturbance possibly involving a firearm.

"On arrival, officers found one man at the address who had suffered serious injuries. He was treated at the scene by paramedics but sadly pronounced deceased."

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service said it sent three ambulances and two doctors to the scene.

Drivers are being advised to avoid the area until further notice to allow officers to clear the scene and carry out inquiries.
