A man has been arrested and charged with burglary following a raid on a farm in the Holcot area.

An offender was disturbed by a farmer acting suspiciously on his premises at about 9.45pm on Tuesday.

The offender made a getaway onto Hannington Road but a dog handler then picked up a track which led to the arrest of a 20-year-old local man in a disused caravan on the Walgrave Road.
