The Southern Daily Echo reports that a group of family members and friends from Hampshire have been jailed for more than 23 years for the conspiracy to steal £110,000 worth of items from DIY stores and selling them on eBay.

Masterminded and led by George Mason, the ten-month plot saw B&Q and Homebase stores targeted by small teams before they were sold on various online eBay accounts.

The gang would fill trolleys up with goods and stash them in the garden centre of the stores where they could be later picked up by making holes in fencing or twisting razor wire.
