Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses after shots were fired at a house in Great Denham last night (Wednesday).

At approximately 8.45pm, officers were called to reports that a car had pulled up to an address on Greenkeepers Road and two shots were fired at a downstairs window, causing damage to the frame. Nobody in the property was injured.

Detective Chief Inspector Aaron Kiff said, “This is a concerning incident that happened in a residential area and thankfully no one was injured.
