'A police force has paid substantial damages to an elderly couple and their son after armed officers apparently arrested them at gunpoint - and threatened to shoot their pet dog.
Brian Arundale, 86, and his wife Ghislaine, 67, along with their 37-year-old son Ralph, say they were attacked by officers after they called police for help.
Three days before the raid at their home in the village of Coreley, Shropshire, they called police to report a neighbour who had threatened to give Ghislaine 'a good pasting'.
The family say they were stunned when three officers, including two carrying firearms, burst into their home in July 2014 demanding Brian hand over his legally-owned shotguns. Police do not accept all of the claims.
Despite the family being the victims, Ghislaine, who volunteered at a charity shop and was a former neighbourhood watch coordinator, and her son Ralph were arrested.
The family claim police ordered Brian to hand over his two firearms which were locked in an upstairs cabinet.
Ghislaine claims she heard her elderly husband, who had recently dislocated his shoulder, cry out in pain while walking up the stairs with an officer.
When she went to investigate she claims an officer shoved her downstairs before pinning her to the ground and punching or kneeing her in the back.
According to the family, Ralph came to help his mum but was handcuffed before being punched twice in the head by an officer.'
