A man who staged five armed robberies in a month has been jailed for 14 years, police have said.

Leon Young pleaded guilty to five offences after carrying out armed raids across Dagenham and Ilford, in Essex, in January.

The 24-year-old was also convicted by a jury of an aggravated burglary in Harlow, Essex, which took place in December 2011, said Scotland Yard.

At Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday, Young was told he would serve eight years for his robbery and firearm offences and six years for aggravated burglary – a total of 14 years imprisonment.
