A man has gone on trial accused of a double shooting murder at a travellers' site in Suffolk.

The bodies of David Castell, 29, and Shane Hill, 20, both from Southend, Essex, were found at Willow Park in Beck Row, near Mildenhall, on 15 March.

Christopher Line, 28, of Beck Row, denied murder, at Ipswich Crown Court.

The prosecution told the jury the deaths were connected to a dispute between two families with the victims planning to torch caravans as a result.

The court was shown CCTV footage from the Barton Mills Petrol station, near Beck Row, that allegedly shows the defendants filling up petrol cans.

The prosecution said Mr Line caught them with the cans at the caravan park before shooting them.

The case continues.
