A man from Bristol has been jailed for a number of burglary offences.
Jamie Ward, 36 of no fixed address in Bristol was yesterday (Tuesday 3 September) sentenced at Bristol Crown Court to two years and nine months in prison having admitted a spate of burglaries across Bristol.

On 30 June, Ward was charged with burglary and two counts of assaulting an emergency worker. He admitted to a number of other burglaries which were considered in Court yesterday during sentencing.
