“A car that was believed to have been used by the offender, a white Peugeot 208, and a shotgun have been recovered,” said the police spokesperson.

The properties in Meridian Close and The Row have been cordoned off and police officers remain at the scenes.

Detective chief superintendent Jon Hutchinson, of Cambridgeshire Police, confirmed said his officers had quickly established the connection between the shootings at Bluntisham and at Sutton, a few miles away.

Police say their primary line of investigation is that of a “familial issue” and could involve a custody battle.

Det Chief Supt Jon Hutchinson said that may change “as information develops in the hours ahead”.
