Four student doctors sharing a semi-detached house were shocked when their home was ransacked by burglars.

Thousands of pounds worth of belongings were taken from the home in North Park Drive Layton.

Drawers and cupboards had been tipped out and human waste smeared on a wall.

Tyler McPherson and a 17-year-old youth were also responsible for a burglary at a nearby address.

McPherson, 18, of Shaw Road, Blackpool and the 17- year-old had pleaded guilty to a burglary which took place between July 3 and 7 this year.

McPherson admitted the burglary with intent to steal, which took place at another address on North Park Drive.

The other teenager was placed on intensive supervision and surveillance by the youth court.

The female student doctors were all out when the burglary took place at their address.
