JAIL sentences have been handed to four men brought to justice after police targeted criminals involved in rural crime across Cumbria, often targeting high-value vehicles.

The crime group's targets included Land Rovers and a £35,000 motor-home, stolen from the owner's driveway in Portinscale village, near Keswick.

At Carlisle Crown Court today, a judge sentenced four men for their roles in the offending, much of which happened in the Keswick area.

Chief among them was 33-year-old Patrick Young, formerly of Firlands, Stanwix, who repeatedly attempted to sell on the vehicles he stole in the north-east.
