A clay pigeon shoot in memory of a farm manager has raised more than £800 for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

The Peter Barney Memorial Shoot took place at the Grimsthorpe Shooting Estate on Sunday and was organised by the family and friends of Lincolnshire Field Products farm manager Peter Barney, who died in October 2010, following an accident at his workplace.

Top gun, who won £125 and a trophy, hitting 44 out of 50 clays was Paul Lovick from Essex.

Chris Sumner took second place with a score of 42, while Phil Watson was the third placed gun with 41.

Mr Barney’s family were thrilled with the support the event got in its second year.
