A man died after being shot twice with a sawn-off shotgun following a family argument, a court has heard.

Jonathan Smith, 38, was killed in May after driving to Peter Guy's home and repeatedly crashing his lorry into his van and garage door, Hull Crown Court was told.

Mr Guy, 54, of Melton, East Yorkshire, denies murdering Mr Smith, his partner's son-in-law.

He has admitted five associated firearms offences.

The court heard that Mr Smith drove to Mr Guy's house from his home in Doncaster after a family row.

The jury was played the emergency call to the police in which Mr Guy is heard claiming he had been stabbed twice in the neck.

He was then heard to say: "I've shot him."

The trial continues.
