Police have arrested and charged two young men following a series of burglaries.

The two youths were taken into custody last Friday in relation to a number of burglaries and attempted burglaries that took place in the early hours of Monday, September 27, in Lowercroft, Bury.

The pair have been remanded in custody after being charged with 16 charges.

Sgt Irish, of the Bury Burglary Team, said: "Burglary is a horrible crime which often leaves victims feeling unsafe in their own home.

"My team is dedicated to bringing these burglars to justice. We are working around the clock to identify prolific offenders like these two, and prevent them from committing more crimes.

"I am proud of my staff for using a variety of methods in order to identify and apprehend these offenders."
