Stephen Muncaster, the uncle of Lottery millionaire, Michael Carroll has been named locally as having died in the shooting just after midnight this morning in the small west Norfolk village.

The 47-year-old was found in the front garden of a bungalow in Stow Road, while a woman believed to be his wife Allison Muncaster, 48, was discovered inside the house.

Forensic teams have spent the day searching the house, and the road to the property is closed while investigations continue.

Detective Superintendent Paul Durham, Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, said: 'As a result of our initial investigation there is no evidence to suggest that anyone else was involved in this incident.
