The key witness to a double shooting at the cottage where Boris Johnson grew up was held captive by the alleged killer before being told to flee the scene by a 999 operator.

Debbie Zurick, 56, a dog trainer who once worked for Princess Anne, is believed to have been shot dead on Saturday by her estranged husband John, 67.

The killing happened after Mrs Zurick returned to their cottage, formerly owned by the Prime Minister’s father, with the unnamed female friend, who Mr Zurick reportedly held captive during the shooting.

She then called 999 and was told to get as far away from the scene on Exmoor as possible.
