A 'PROLIFIC' shoplifter from Ulverston has been jailed for a year.

On March 29 he stole twelve cans of deodorant worth £58.50 as well as six packets of Pampers wipes worth £15 from Boots in Ulverston.
Coates was arrested on May 6 and, during a search of his home address, police discovered a box of glacier mints, six boxes of tea bags and twelve cans of deodorant which had a collective value of more than £50.
