Two men have been jailed indefinitely after admitting firing shots at a house in Telford.

At least two shots were fired at a house in Leicester Way, Leegomery, on 26 March, but no-one was injured.

Shakeel Khan, 26, of Victoria Court, Hadley, Telford, and Abzul Khan, 24, of Thornhill Road, Birmingham, were both jailed for six years and eight months.

Both admitted conspiracy to possess firearms with intent to endanger life at Shrewsbury Crown Court.

The men were given Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) sentences, which means they will remain in prison as long as they are thought to pose a serious risk to the public.

West Mercia Police said it was "very satisfied" with the sentences.

Temporary Det Supt Paul Williamson said: "It is through sheer good fortune that no-one was injured when the shots were fired into the property on Leicester Way as a woman was at home with her two young children at the time."

He described the investigation as a long and complex one.
