Charlie Simms, aged 22, of North Road in Great Yeldham, Kalebh Shreeve, aged 23, of Gibson Road in Halstead and Christopher Bergin, aged 27, of Hawkwood Road in Halstead appeared at Colchester Magistrates’ Court.

It follows an incident in which a man was shot in the thigh through a locked bedroom door as he barricaded himself away from intruders.

The victim was confirmed today as businessman Timothy Mardon, and the court heard his leg may still not be saved.
