Three people have been jailed for robbing a man at a cashpoint in Milton Keynes.

49-year-old Roy Munday, 23-year-old Stefan Karlington, and 36-year-old Louisa Thompson were sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court.

They attacked a 24-year-old man who was withdrawing money from a cash machine at the Co-operative in Fishermead on 1 April.

Thompson observed how much cash he'd taken out. Munday and Karlington then followed him, threw him to the ground, punched and kicked him.

They stole his cash and mobile phone, but he was not injured.

Munday was sentenced to four years and six months in prison for one count of robbery.

Karlington was jailed for three years and four months, while Thompson was jailed for two years and six months.

“This was an unprovoked and violent attack on the victim purely because he had been seen to withdraw money for his rent."

A 16-year-old boy from Hertfordshire has been robbed of a £7,000 Rolex watch he was wearing on his wrist.

It happened back in August in Hatfield, but police have only now released details.

Officers released a picture of the watch, which they say is of great sentimental value to the teenager and his mother.

It was stolen from the boy while he was at an event at Hatfield House on 6 August.

He was approached by a group of up to eight offenders, who threatened him and made him hand over the watch.

The watch is a Gold Rolex Day Date serial number 5810046 and is worth £7,000.

"The watch is of sentimental value as it belonged to the victim's father. It was left to him and his mother and understandably both are keen to see it returned."

A duck has been found in the middle of a housing estate in Suffolk.

The white drake caused a flap when he sat down in the road in the Teesdale housing estate in Carlton Colville, Lowestoft last week.

Animal loving residents managed to usher him in a greenhouse and alerted the RSPCA.

“It was very odd place to find a duck. He was just sitting in the road in the wet weather and a local cat was eyeing him up.

“He was tame so the locals rounded him up and popped him in a greenhouse until we collected him.

“It’s a bit of a mystery how he got there. He may be someone’s escaped pet or he may have been abandoned.”

– Paige Burnham, RSPCA Animal Collection Officer

Posters have been put up in the local area in a bid to find the duck's owners.

The animal will be put up for rehoming if no-one comes forward.
