Callum O’Neil Tumilty is beginning 26 weeks in jail after he was found guilty of stealing a Ford Mondeo and its keys from Widdington, near Morpeth, following a trial.

North Tyneside magistrates imprisoned him after labelling the July 9 offences “a breach of trust” and noting his previous convictions.

Tumily, 25, of no fixed address, was also ordered to pay his victim £1,550 compensation at a rate of £20 per month from the end of April next year, meaning the debt will not repaid until 2027.
