He wrote: "An absolutely horrible incident in my Bourne Valley Ward on Wednesday afternoon.

"My thoughts are with the family of the man who was shot - and the communities of both Enham Alamein and Hurstbourne Tarrant.

"I’ve been informed of some of the details by local sources this evening but I certainly don’t have a full picture.

"I will hopefully get further information from the police in the morning and that they will be able to reassure local residents.

"But tonight, let’s all hope that the victim of the shooting makes a full recovery."
