The woman in her 60s found with multiple injuries at the scene is his mother.

She was found by paramedics with a man in his 70s, who had multiple injuries, inside the address on Cutting Hill.

Police officers were called to a disturbance at the house in the rural hamlet of Ham near Shalbourne, a few miles from Marlborough, on Monday evening at 7.30pm.

Force helicopters circled the scene casting spotlights in and around the house before landing in a nearby field.
The woman was taken to Southampton General Hospital with serious head injuries where she remains in a critical but stable condition. The man was taken to Great Western Hospital in Swindon and is in a serious but stable condition. 
The suspect, who is from Hampshire, remains in custody at Gablecross police station in Swindon for further questioning. 

Ham resident Rosie Hawkins told the Gazette: “There were a lot of police cars and helicopters were circling for some time.”
“We didn’t know what was going on. It’s so quiet here usually.”
Det Insp Mark Kent said: “We can confirm that the man in custody is known to the two victims and this is being treated as a domestic incident. 
“We understand this news will undoubtedly cause concern at a time when there are high levels of anxiety within our communities. Please be reassured that there is no wider risk and we are conducting enquiries in relation to this incident.”
