Three men have been sentenced for forcing their way into a house in Godmanchester, near Huntingdon, and shooting the man inside.

It happened in Anderson Crescent on the 1st June last year.

The 41 year old victim was minding the house for his friend when  he heard a knock at the door.

He opened it two people barged their way inside.

After this, the man heard a loud bang, looked down to see he was bleeding and had been shot.

The three men then escaped in a car without taking anything.

The victim was seriously hurt, and after calling for help was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital and survived.

Travis Pratt, 29, [pictured - bottom centre] pleaded guilty at a previous hearing to possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, aggravated burglary and unlawful wounding.

He was sentenced to seven and a half years for the firearms charge, five years for aggravated burglary and two years for GBH, to run concurrently.

Harry Beddoes, 24, [pictured - bottom right] who was found guilty of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life at a previous hearing, was sentenced to 13 years.

Martin Hunt, 57, [pictured - bottom left] who was found guilty of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life at a previous hearing, was sentenced to eight years.

Det Insp Simon Harding said: "This type of incident is thankfully rare.

However, the victim is still suffering the physical effects of this crime and I hope that this result will help in his recovery, knowing that justice has been done."
