A police hunt is under way for a man suspected of having shot and injured two people on farmland in Essex.

The men were left with gunshot wounds to the legs and chest following the incident on land in Navestock near Brentwood at 15:30 BST on Tuesday.

Essex Police said they were looking for Francis O'Donoghue, 27, who is believed to have been at his home on the farm when the shooting happened.

Supt Trevor Roe said it was thought the victims knew the person who shot them.

He added: "We would urge people who know Francis to avoid him purely because he is in possession of a firearm and those who come into contact with him should call us immediately.

"There is nothing, though, to suggest that anyone else is at risk of being injured."

The victims are both being treated in hospital under armed police guard and are in a stable condition, Mr Roe said.

Mr O'Donoghue is described as white, about 5ft 11in and in his late 20s.

He is of average build, with short brown hair and protruding ears and speaks with an Irish accent.
