One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Peterborough Man Jailed After Queens Walk Burglary
A Peterborough burglar has been jailed for more than two years just eight days after his offence.
Neil Simpson, 27, of no fixed address, was caught minutes after breaking into a property in Queens Walk, on March 19.
He was identified by the boyfriend of the homeowner, who saw Simpson hurriedly leaving Queens Walk heading towards London Road.
He gave chase but lost sight of him.
Minutes later Simpson was caught by police at a nearby address with items from the property, including Euros and a laptop.
He was sentenced at Peterborough Magistrates' Court on March 27 after pleading guilty.
Detective Constable Adam Blake, said:
"The speed with which Simpson was found was the result of great work by police officers. He is a known criminal and had only just been released from prison.
This sentence should act as a reminder to criminals that we act swiftly and with the full force of the law to keep people safe in their communities."
