A 51-year-old man has appeared in court charged with grievous bodily harm, aggravated vehicle taking and criminal damage after a woman suffered shotgun injuries in a Northamptonshire village.

Shaun Creasey, of Teeton, appeared before Northampton Magistrates’ Court this morning following the incident, which happened on Sunday, shortly before 6pm.

Creasy is accused of stealing the victim’s Land Rover, crashing it into a hedge and damaging £200 of crops in a nearby field.

The woman suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries and was taken to Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham where she is in a stable condition.

Creasey was remanded in custody and will appear in Northampton Crown Court next month.
