Pensioner arrested after builder death threats

A pensioner has been arrested after making death threats in a row with builders at his home in Gloucestershire, police revealed yesterday.
According to the Western Daily Press, four shotguns were taken from the home of the elderly man by police investigating the allegations.

Inspector Ian Phillips of Gloucestershire police said: 'The threats were made to building contractors as a result of a dispute regarding access to the man's property.'

Police say the man, aged between 70 and 80, holds a current shotgun certificate and the guns were removed from his home at Tutshill, which is on the Gloucestershire side of Chepstow.

The man was released on police bail until August 21.
