The Daily Mail reports that a postman has been jailed for stealing hundreds of packages containing valuables and then making £15,500 by selling them online.

Andrew Barratt, 49, took an estimated 400 items such as satnavs, digital cameras and computer games which his wife Michelle, 38, then auctioned on ebay.

Their scam was foiled in April 2012 when Royal Mail investigators posted an iPad with a tracking device. It failed to arrive and was followed to their home in Stockport.

Barratt was jailed for 15 months after admitting theft and converting criminal property.
