A serial burglar from Essex has admitted targeting three houses in Oxfordshire, including Bicester

Martin Stokes, of Warrior Square, Ilford, pleaded guilty to nine burglaries and one attempted break in yesterday at Oxford Crown Court.

Most of the 20-year-old’s crimes were in Aylesbury or High Wycombe, but he carried out three burglaries in Bicester, two in The Oval and one in Orchard Way.

The attempted break-in was in George Street in Bicester. All the offences took place in March last year.

Stokes was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on March 19.
