A three-year-old girl is under police guard following her discovery in a house which gunmen had broken into, killing three men and injuring two women, in Bishop's Stortford, England.

Police announced on Wednesday that the toddler had been discovered, unharmed, when they had been called to an incident on Tuesday evening. Neighbours have said that they heard shots from the house around 2130 (BST), before observing an Asian man returning to an accomplice in a red car outside the premises. The men are believed to have been in their early twenties, and were seen fleeing the scene towards the M11 motorway.

Three men were killed, aged 17, 33 and 52 and two women, aged 23 and 54, were injured. They are believed to have been victims of a targeted shooting, as opposed to a random act of violence, or burglary involving firearms.
