It came after a property in Yarmouth Road was broken into overnight between August 8 and 9, 2020 and Euros, cash and jewellery were stolen.

Another property on Yarmouth Road was also burgled and left with 'extensive damage' between August 14 and 19, with a significant quantity of jewellery taken.

A man was subsequently arrested on August 19, 2020, and taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Cornell was later charged in connection with the two burglaries.

Det Con Matt Fox, investigating officer, said: "Police, in conjunction with the victims, are pleased with the sentence handed to Cornell.

"In both instances, the families have been left in shock following the invasion into their homes when irreplaceable and sentimental jewellery was stolen.

"As part of the investigation, we were able to return a number of the items to the families, which I am sure will bring them some peace of mind and comfort.”
