Whaley Bridge: Farmer held over burglary shooting death

A farmer is being questioned on suspicion of murder and attempted murder over the shooting of two men during a burglary in Derbyshire, the BBC understands.
Derbyshire Police was called to reports of a burglary in Eccles Road, in Whaley Bridge, at 01:20 BST on Wednesday.Officers found a man in his late teens with fatal gunshot wounds and another teen with a gunshot wound nearby.A man in his 50s was held on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.

What are your thoughts on people protecting themselves and their property from burglary in the UK? I believe there is a law in the US that offers people some protection in these scenarios, but unsure if this is a thing in the UK.
