Cambridgeshire shootings Man in court over murders

A man has appeared in court charged with the murders of a father and son who were shot dead in Cambridgeshire.

Josh Dunmore, 32, was found in Bluntisham at about 21:00 BST on Wednesday and Gary Dunmore, 57, was found in Sutton about 40 minutes later.

Stephen Alderton, 66, of no fixed address, is charged with two counts of murder and possession of a firearm.

Wearing a grey prison tracksuit, he confirmed his name, age and address at Huntingdon Magistrates' Court.

No pleas were entered and he was remanded in custody.

The case was sent to Cambridge Crown Court, where a hearing will take place on Monday.

The victims' family have paid tribute to the "devoted" father and son in a statement released via Cambridgeshire Constabulary on Friday.

They said: "Josh was a devoted father and a loving uncle.

"He was a wonderful son and brother and leaves behind an extensive group of family and friends.

"He will be deeply missed and the devastation this has caused will never heal.

"Gary was the most devoted son, brother, dad and grandad, who gave everything for those he loved.

"He was a gentle and generous person who always put others before himself and he'll be massively missed by his family and all those who knew and loved him."

A floral tribute to Gary Dunmore, left outside his home in The Row, Sutton, said: "To my dear neighbour Gary.

"A man who loved his family dearly, a dear friend to all, so helpful and kind and was always around as a friend and my little odd job man.

"I'm going to miss you."

Police said post-mortem examinations will take place at Peterborough City Hospital on Monday.

A 27-year-old man and 33-year-old woman, who were arrested in connection with the deaths, have been released with no further action taken.
