“The investigation continues and as yet, no arrests have been made. “

A Wiltshire Police spokesperson added, “We believe this as an isolated incident and want to reassure everyone living in the local community that we are investigating this thoroughly so we can quickly catch those responsible.

“Officers will be making house-to-house enquiries to speak to local residents to see if anyone has information that may assist this investigation.

“We are still establishing the exact circumstances of this incident and we would like to appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in Seend, around the time of the incident at approx 11.30pm on Wednesday, to contact us, either by calling 101 or by contacting us anonymously via Crime-stoppers on 0800 555 111.”
