A MAN was shot in the arm with an arrow while he was in his garden.

The 68-year-old was taken to the Great Western Hospital for his wound to be treated following the incident which happened between 4pm and 5pm yesterday in the Broadway, Moredon.

Det Con Nigel Bullimore said: "It is believed that this arrow may have been fired from the Thames Avenue area into The Broadway and we are appealing for anyone who may have seen the incident, noticed anything unusual in the area around this time, or anyone who was travelling down Thames Avenue around this time and has dash-cam footage which could help our investigation."
