James Smith-Wilds, prosecuting, said there was no one present when the 'low-value' items were taken and most, if not all, of them have now been returned.

He added that no damage had been done to gain entry and there were no signs of ransacking.

His Honour Judge Rupert Mayo sentenced him to a one-year community order with 15 rehabilitation activity requirement days, and to pay £100 compensation to a victim and a £95 victim surcharge yesterday (Tuesday, September 7).
