Three people have been injured in a series of airgun attacks.

In the latest incident, two women suffered stomach and hip injuries when they were shot at in Hanworth Road, Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey, on Monday.

A man was left with a puncture wound in his arm and bruising to his chest after a shooting in Summit Business Park car park on 23 August.

Police said a minibus was shot at with an air rifle earlier in the month. They are looking at whether they are linked.

Det Insp James Norbury said: "Thankfully none of the victims have been badly injured but this is a worrying spate of incidents which we are taking extremely seriously.

"We are conducting a number of inquiries in the vicinity of these offences but are also seeking the public's help in providing any information that could help the ongoing investigation."
