James Hockaday

A pensioner from Colnbrook could face prison for owning a shotgun without a certificate in connection with a fatal shooting of a man in June.

Reuben Gregory, 72, who lives in a secluded caravan beside the Colnbrook Bypass, pleaded guilty to the firearms offence at Slough Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Monday).

He is due to be sentenced at Reading Crown Court but a date is yet to be set.

On June 12, armed police were called to Gregory’s home to investigate the shooting of 48-year-old Wayne Digby, who was said in a post-mortem report to have died from a shotgun wound to the abdomen.

  • A 72-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder was released without charge.
