Mix-up over report appointment
BURGLAR Tommy Saunders could not be sentenced this week, because he had missed an appointment with the probation officer who was due to write his pre-sentence report.

"He did not receive the letter fixing the appointment until the day after the appointment was due," solicitor James Yardy told the court on Thursday.
