A teenage boy who conspired to carry out a series of distraction burglaries across London, Kent and Surrey with two adults has been sentenced today.

The 13-year-old from Croydon, who was 12 years old at the time of the offences, was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court.

He was given a 12 month rehabilitation order and 12 month supervision order to carry out an activity requirement for six months, after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary on February 28.

Michael Doran, 39, was sentenced to nine years and six months imprisonment and Geraldine Ward, 36, was sentenced to three years after both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary at earlier hearings.

The trio had carried out a string of offences across London, Surrey and Kent between June and September 2013 with officers eventually linking them to 48 offences.
