Four members of an organised crime gang which carried out more than 200 burglaries across the East of England have been ordered to pay back just £1.

Almost 100 of the 200 raids, which cost victims more than £2m, were carried out in Norfolk, across 33 towns and villages.

Twelve members of the gang were jailed for a total of more than 70 years in December last year following an 11-month crime spree in 2017.

Some were back at Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday for a Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) hearing.

Danny Stone-Parker, 24, and Timothy Stone Parker, 28, who were both jailed for six and a half years for their part in the conspiracy were both believed to have benefited to the tune of £1.2m but both were said to have available assets of just £1.
