At Ipswich Crown Court Carl Last, 35 of Swinburne Road pleaded guilty to burgling a baker's shop and a newsagent and to driving while disqualified.

He also admitted possessing cannabis resin and amphetamine sulphate and to three times failing to surrender to bail.

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth said Last had a "very bad" criminal record and he was "sad" to hear Last told probation he wanted to go to prison rather than face a community punishment.

Judge Hawkesworth jailed Last for a total of 37 months.
