Two burglars have been jailed for a nationwide series of raids on golf clubs, including two in Kent. Daniel Lloyd, 43, and Joe McCaughey, 26, received five and three years respectively after at least 36 separate burglaries in 17 counties, including raids in Faversham and Sheerness.

The pair came to the attention of the National Crime Agency following an investigation into a corrupt criminal defence lawyer who was sentenced last year for perverting the course of justice. Lloyd was one of the lawyer’s close associates and was arrested at the time.
