A teenager has pleaded guilty to a firearm offence in relation to an incident in Calne on New Years Day.

Adam Salsbury admitted possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence on Tuesday January 1.

He also pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and one of criminal damage when he appeared before a judge at Swindon crown court.

The 18-year-old could now face the prospect of a jail term when he is sentenced later in the year.

Salsbury, of Wenhill Heights, Calne, pleaded guilty to possessing a carbon dioxide powered air pistol with intent to cause fear of violence to Nicholas Haigh.

He also admitted common assault on the same victim and criminal damage to a window belonging to him.

Finally the teenager pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm to Ellis Jones. All of the offences took place on New Years Day.

Alex Daymond, defending, said a psychiatric report is being obtained on his client to assist the judge who passes sentence.

Recorder Ian Pringle QC adjourned the case to Friday June 6 so the probation service can compile a pre-sentence report and the medical report can be prepared.

He released Salsbury on bail on condition he does not go to Mr Haigh's address in Poppy Close, Calne.

Police were called to the house in the early hours of the morning to reports of someone being shot in the chest with airgun pellets.
