A Doncaster man has been jailed after being caught out by a cricket club whose players saw a crook raiding their changing rooms during a match.

The game was brought to an unexpected halt so the teams could catch the intruder who had been spotted looting the pavilion.

Samuel Stanley sneaked into the changing rooms to steal 12 iPhones from the jacket pockets of players while a 50-over match near Accrington, Lancashire, was underway on Sunday.
