Disturbing footage has emerged showing a ‘traveller’ firing his shotgun into the air and threatening to ‘put a hole’ in a rival.

The man is filmed standing in front of a damaged caravan, wielding the firearm and telling an individual named ‘Peewee’ to ‘sleep with one eye open’.

He then points at Peewee and accuses him of ramming into his caravan, before firing the shotgun into the air.

He then threatens to turn his gun on Peewee, as the shotgun cartridge is seen rolling on the road by his feet.

While clutching the gun, the man puts his face right into the camera, and says: ‘You’re in a lot of trouble. I’m taking down every one of your places Peewee.

‘You are one dead man, on my grandmother’s grave.’
