A former mayor of a Lancashire village has been jailed for two years after being found guilty of four charges of burglary.

It emerged that the 59-year old bachelor had been going into the homes of people who had entrusted keys to him as he worked for them as a handyman and gardener.

Underwear to the value of 900 pounds sterling was stolen from various homes over a six-month period and the thief was only apprehended after a suspicious woman left a hidden camera in her bedroom to try and catch him in the act.

Ian Stafford was forced to resign from his position as mayor and said after the case that he was “deeply ashamed of the whole scenario”.
