A BURGLAR who tricked his way into a profoundly deaf 80-year-old’s home, stealing her mother’s jewellery which was never recovered, has been jailed for four years. Daniel McGill, 36, of Warwick Court, Gateshead, was jailed at Newcastle Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday). Chief Inspector Paul Knox, of Central Area Command, said: “This was a particularly cruel and callous act targeting an elderly woman who has very poor eyesight and can only communicate via sign language. “McGill has taken away the trust this woman had and deprived her of family heirlooms which are simply irreplaceable.”

Motorists are asked to take extra care on the roads this evening with heavy rainfall making driving conditions difficult in some areas. Please leave extra time to travel and increase the stopping distance between yourself and the vehicle in front.
