By Marcus Dysch, January 28, 2010

A businessman is being investigated by police after a shotgun was fired at a neighbour’s burglar alarm late at night.

Peter Shalson, 52, was questioned following an incident at the property next to his detached home in St John’s Wood, north west London, earlier this month.

A butler at the neighbour’s house claimed CCTV footage had caught an intruder climbing a cast-iron fence, smashing a glass door and then shooting the alarm’s control box to stop it ringing.

In March, the eruv committee intends to submit an application to Westminster Council for the erection of 38 poles covering Boundary Road in the north, Avenue Road in the east, Regent’s Canal in the south and Shirland Road in the west.
