Blood-covered Cumbrian burglar sent to prison

A burglar who was bleeding from his hands when he was arrested has been sent to prison.

Steven Wood, 36, of Moor Road, Longtown admitted two charges of burglary and one of criminal damage.

Carlisle Magistrates’ Court heard that on October 2 this year the owner of Whitesyke Garden Centre near Longtown received a call just before midnight from a security company to say that the alarm had gone off.

He found three doors damaged, glass broken and blood at the scene.

Shortly afterwards Jaroslaw Powloski reported he had seen Wood attack his car outside nearby TG Norman sawmill.

It was discovered that there had been damage to the sawmill as well.

Wood was sentenced to 140 days in prison.

How far would you go to look at a bird?

Very far. Excited when rare birds set up home here

I watch birds through the window and on TV. That's all

Birdwatching doesn't appeal to me. I'd go a long way to avoid a gull though
