UK Police are looking for a man with a crossbow after a radio commentator's family was killed

British police launched a large-scale manhunt on Wednesday for 26-year-old Kyle Clifford, who was suspected of being armed with a crossbow and potentially other weapons, following the tragic deaths of three women in a house near London. The victims were identified as Carol Hunt, the wife of BBC's main radio racing commentator John Hunt, and two of their daughters, aged 25 and 28.

The incident occurred in Bushey, northwest of London, where police responded to reports of serious injuries on Tuesday evening. Despite efforts by emergency crews, all three women were pronounced dead at the scene. John Hunt reportedly discovered their bodies upon returning home from his work at Lingfield Park racecourse.

Kyle Clifford, believed to be from London and an ex-boyfriend of one of the daughters, was identified as the suspect. He had a brief period of service in the British Army in 2022. Authorities urged the public not to approach Clifford if spotted and appealed for him to contact the police.

The community in Bushey was shocked by the incident, with local councilor Laurence Brass describing the area as a "typical leafy British suburb" and recounting the sudden police presence and helicopter activity on the evening of the tragedy.

The Home Office indicated that Home Secretary Yvette Cooper was monitoring the situation closely and would consider recommendations from a review on whether stricter regulations on crossbows should be implemented, as current laws do not require a license for ownership but prohibit public carrying without a valid reason.
