British couple shot and injured in Barbados robbery

 

A 59-year-old woman and her 72-year-old husband were shot and robbed as they returned to their cruise ship after a stopover on the Caribbean island, it was reported last night.

The couple, named locally last night as Philip and Ann Prior, from Woodbridge in Suffolk, had been on a three-month P&O cruise. Mr Prior was shot in the side of the pelvis during the attack near the harbour in the capital, Bridgetown, on Sunday afternoon.

Tourists and passers-by rushed to help the couple after the attack. It is not believed their condition is life-threatening.
