A man's been jailed after appearing in court in connection with the theft of a charity box that was raising money for Bradley Lowery.

It was taken from The Lunch Box cafe in Peterlee.

The money collected was going towards the Bradley Lowery Foundation, which was set up to help the five-year-old Sunderland fan, who has neuroblastoma.

The money was later recovered by police.

35 year old Stephen Whitworth, of no fixed abode, has been sentenced to 12 weeks.
