A burglar has been jailed for a string of break-ins in Cambridgeshire. Peter Smith, 35, targeted nine properties in Waterbeach and one in Ely.

He had moved to the Waterbeach area a month before his three-week crime spree.

When arrested Smith was wearing a rare pair of Adidas trainers which matched footprints left in some of the burgled properties.

He pleaded guilty to all ten counts and was sentenced to four and a half years in jail.
