A man has been jailed after inflicting a “terrible injury” when he shot someone in the leg during a struggle in Eastfield.

Matthew Davis, 29, had been drinking with a couple earlier at an address in High Garth, Eastfield, and clearly became “very drunk,” said Judge Geoffrey Marson QC.

The woman who he was drinking with had complained to Davis that her boyfriend had threatened her with what she thought was a gun and had put some bullets in her pocket.
