Two men charged with caravan park murder

Two men have been charged with the murder of a man at a caravan site in Somerset, UK.

Charlie Broadway, 23, and 18-year-old William Broadway have been jointly charged with the murder of Wilfred Isaacs, 50, attempted murder and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

The charges relate to a double shooting on Thursday night at the Chubbards Cross caravan park, near Ilton, Ilminster, Somerset, that left Mr Isaacs dead and another man in his 20s injured.

The pair, from Ilton, have been remanded in custody and are due before South Somerset Magistrates' Court in Yeovil on Monday morning.

The remaining five people arrested in connection with Mr Isaacs's death remain in custody.

Detective Superintendent Andy Bevan, who is leading the investigation, said: "This has been a fast-paced and wide-ranging investigation and I would like to again thank the local communities affected for their patience and support.

"We will continue to have a visible police presence at Chubbards Cross caravan site as this ongoing, complex investigation continues.

"A vast amount of work is still taking place at the scene of the shooting as our meticulous forensic examination develops. We anticipate this site will remain closed for the next few days as these enquiries progress.

"Our thoughts remain with Wilfred's family and specially trained Family Liaison Officers continue to support them through this difficult time.

"We are continuing to look for the murder weapon, which we believe is a shotgun. I would repeat our appeal for anyone with information as to the whereabouts of this gun to call us immediately."
