Do we know if Nevill was in the habit of keeping a shotgun in his bedroom at night?

I read something the other day about this and I’ve heard it mentioned before, I could be wrong?  There is no mention of police finding one though, so could it have been removed the night before?

Is this a myth? I'm not sure.

I don’t know Hartley, I thought I read in someone’s statement that he did or had the other day, obviously the police never found one.

I've heard it before, I just don't recall the origin.

Where was it that AE found the shotgun ? As it was she who'd first pointed it out.

I think it originated from Mike, presumably based upon what he was told by JB.  I may be wrong but I seem to recall he said it was something to do with foxes at night and nothing to do with security.  I have to say I would be surprised at anyone taking a shot at a fox from a bedroom window, but I suppose it could just be true.

Ive also read it NGB, I’m sure it was in a statement, I will check later today.

It's in one of Robert Boutflour's statements.  I can't remember which one.  If I recall, he says it was because of the value of the gun as much as anything else.
