Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

A BUR­GLAR who broke his legs flee­ing cops has been jailed.

Daryl Dob­son, 29, plunged 25ft as he ran af­ter blag­ging a house in his home town of Bishop Auck­land, Co Durham.

Of­fi­cers found him hid­ing in a bush try­ing to sti­fle his screams af­ter suf­fer­ing mul­ti­ple breaks in both legs and a back in­jury from his fall.

Now wheel­chair-bound, Dob­son was jailed for two and a half years af­ter the judge heard of pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions.
