Following two fatal shootings in Cambridgeshire last night, one of which occurred in Bluntisham, in Shailesh Vara MP’s constituency of North West Cambridgeshire, Mr Vara said:
“This is tragic news from what are normally quiet areas of Cambridgeshire, and it has really shocked the local community. My thoughts and sympathies are with those affected by last night’s events.
“I am in contact with the local police, who have acted very quickly and made several arrests. It is good that they have given assurances that they do not believe there is any wider risk to the general public.
“I would urge anyone with any information about these incidents, however trivial it may seem, to contact the police.
“In the meantime, I hope that people will carry on as normal.”
