Outside the court, Gwent Police’s officer in the case, PC Garrad Davies said; "Burglary can have a significant and long-lasting impact on those targeted.

“The fact that this particular incident occurred in the early hours of the morning while the victims were at home asleep makes it even more horrifying.

“I hope this custodial sentence goes some way in providing the victims with some comfort."
