A REPEAT offender has been jailed for four months after stealing Christmas lights, giftsets and a projector.

Carl Taylor, of Chisworth Close, Leigh, also admitted to the theft of more than £300 worth of make up and toiletries when he appeared at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court last Tuesday.

The 44-year-old was sent to prison due to his history of similar offences and breaching previous court orders.
