Officers backed up by the regional police helicopter dashed to the scene after trouble erupted at Spinney Close travellers’ site, off Braybrooke Road, in the early hours of May 13.

A 44-year-old man from Desborough was detained by police investigating the dramatic incident on suspicion of attempted murder.

Three suspects arrested by police after a caravan was apparently petrol bombed in Desborough will not face any more action.

A man of 22 and a woman aged 23, both also from Desborough, were also held on suspicion of arson.

All three suspects were freed by police under investigation after being quizzed about the disturbance – in which no one was injured.

A Northamptonshire Police spokeswoman said: “Due to a lack of evidence and official witness accounts, the suspects in this case have been released with no further action.”
