Three men have been jailed for a total of more than twenty years after a burglary in Peterborough.
28-year old Charlie Edwards and 33-year old Jody Stones, both from Peterborough and 41-year old Daniel Willerton from Corby all pleaded guilty to burglary.
In August 2017 the three men forced their way into a house in Ramsey Mereside stealing a safe and valuable coins. They made off in a stolen red BMW.
Police pursued the car on North Bank Road, Peterborough, where it was then involved in a head-on collision with a Jaguar.
“The total disregard to the law and the safety of the public is disturbing and this sentence reflects how seriously we take burglary and driving offences. These were prolific offenders, but this result means they won’t be on our streets again for a long time and I hope that provides some sense of reassurance to the public.”
- Jody Stones was sentenced to 9 years.
- Charlie Edwards sentenced to 7 years.
- Daniel Willerton sentenced to 3 years and four months.

Staff and visitors to a Peterborough country park are appealing for help to catch whoever is responsible for a spate of vandalism which took place on Christmas Eve.
More than a dozen memorial benches and 26 trees were damaged at Ferry Meadows.
It's not the first time the park has seen this type of vandalism, similar damage was also caused in 2016 and earlier in 2017.
Staff say whoever is responsible has used tools to cut away sections of the benches, earning them the nick-name of 'the carpenter'.
"They're attacking the park benches, we're having saplings vandalised and literally being cut off, we've had bridges vandalised, we have safety rails each side of the bridges to stop members of the public going over. They've been cut, just removed. People who use the park are saddened."
