Some of the businesses were local family businesses causing them significant financial impact as they could not open up to the public straight away.

Blamire was jailed for three years, three months and 18 days at Preston Crown Court.

PC Shaun Foster, city centre community beat manager said that Lancashire Constabulary were able to identify and arrest Blamire within four days of his crime spree and remanded him into jail pending the court case.

PC Foster would like to thank the public for their support.

One lady witnessed Blamire running off from one burglary and phoned police straight away.
