Jamie Frost and Ilyas Sanchez were recognised by police officers from the images and arrested as they slept rough within miles of the crime scene.

They were both homeless when they broke into the flat at Library Lofts in Castle Street where a Chinese student at Exeter University left a window open.

The two men are known to their police for their use of drugs.

Cornish singer-songwriter Josh Curnow has narrowly missed out on a place in the Britain's Got Talent final.

Josh grew up in Wadebridge and now lives in Indian Queens. He's played in bars and pubs across the county and had high hopes of winning the ITV competition, which offers a chance to perform at the Royal Variety Show.

He certainly impressed the BGT judges in the semi-final with his rendition of Runnin' by Beyonce - but not enough to win the votes of the viewers and make it through to the final ten. He came in fourth place.

Josh may still have a chance at glory... if he is selected as one of the judges' wild cards
