Jeffrey Clive Barker, 38, from Goole entered a late guilty plea to the two offences at homes on Riversdale Drive and Belgrave Drive in Goole on 20 September 2015.

Detective Constable Krista Wood was at court to hear the sentence and said, “Burglary is a despicable crime and I don’t think Barker truly realises the impact he has had on these two households.

“The victim at Riversdale Drive is an elderly widow who lives alone and this has caused sleepless nights and suffers anxiety as a result of the burglary and no longer feels safe in her own home.

“The victims from Belgrave Drive, a family, have suffered immeasurably by having somebody enter their home whilst they were sleeping in their beds, as well as the inconvenience of losing the family vehicle and the contents, including a child’s pram.

“This custodial sentence might give Barker the chance to think about his actions and the impact on the victims.”

The MP for Brigg and Goole, Andrew Percy, has quit twitter, blaming what he calls "bullies and trolls" for taking up too much for his time when he should be speaking to his constituents.

The Conservative member of Parliament says over the last week strangers have attacked him on the social media site calling him corrupt, fat, ugly, a liar and more.

His twitter account has now been locked so that tweets can only be read by those who have previously followed his account and he states that the account will now rarely be checked and people wishing to get in touch should contact his constituency office.
