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.

Given the tide of public opinion against on-street parking charges in Cumbria, should county councillors scrap the plan now?

Yes. They should show they hear the voice of the people

No. The council needs the money and has to get it from somewhere

Town centres will suffer but the council will spend £10m on a new HQ. How can that be right?
