Sible Hedingham shooting

Intruders broke into the house on Rectory Road in the early hours of Saturday, 6 February.

The man inside the building had hidden in his bedroom but was shot through the door.

He suffered what were described as "life-changing" injuries, and Essex Police said he may have to have his leg amputated.

Three men were subsequently arrested.

Now 22 year-old Charlie Simms, from North Road in Great Yeldham, 23 year-old Kalebh Shreeve, from Gibson Road in Halstead, and 27 year-old Christopher Bergin, from Hawkwood Road in Halstead, have all been charged with aggravated burglary, GBH with intent, and possession of a firearm.

They are due at Colchester Magistrates' Court this morning.
