A man who burgled the same house twice a few days apart has been remanded in custody by a judge.

Alan Aldous, 23, admitted stealing furniture and furnishings from the house in Royal Wootton Bassett when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court by video link.

Aldous first burgled the property in Church Street on Wednesday, February 12, this year then again on Saturday, February 22.

Aldous, of The Lawns, Royal Wootton Bassett, pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary.

Judge Douglas Field adjourned the case Friday, April 11, to give the probation service time to compile a pre-sentence report and remanded him in custody until then.
