  • Albert Grannon pleaded guilty at Hull Crown Court to the manslaughter of his great-grandson six-year-old Stanley Metcalf, who died in the shooting in Sproatley, East Yorkshire. Stanley was shot while visiting his elderly relatives on July 26 last year before being rushed to hospital where he died later the same day. Stanley suffered a hole in the side of his abdomen when he was shot. Grannon also admitted possessing an air rifle without holding a firearms certificate. The defendant sat in the dock wearing a jacket, shirt and tie and listened to the proceedings through a headset. The case will be adjourned for sentencing. Police described the incident at the time last year as a 'tragic accident involving a pellet airgun', before Grannon was charged following a lengthy investigation.
