A BURGLAR who raided a couple's room at Alton Towers Hotel has been jailed for a year.

Sean Gaynor sneaked into the room while the guests were out enjoying the theme park's attractions.

They returned to find the door ajar and their iPad and iPhone – worth a total of around £900 – had been stolen.

Hotel security cameras filmed the intruder, but he wasn't arrested until six months later in May this year.

Appearing at Stafford Crown Court yesterday, the 25-year-old, of Stone, admitted burglary.

Judge Paul Glenn said: "Entering hotel rooms and stealing is serious, because people expect them to be safe.

"No doubt you ruined (their) short stay at Alton Towers."
