Two teenage boys who burgled the elderly and disabled were jailed for three and five years yesterday after a crime wave which saw them arrested 115 times in 30 months.

Daniel Storey, (left) aged 14, and Daniel Marsh, (right) aged 17, chose "soft" targets, including a 72-year-old man whom they robbed of his Christmas presents, to feed their drug addiction. Judge David Selwood, at Portsmouth Crown Court, lifted their right to anonymity on the grounds the public had a right to know who had committed the "catalogue of offences".
