Byline: MAX MARGAN Echo Reporter max.margan@trinitymirror.com @maxmargan

TWO Liverpool men pleaded guilty to stealing PS20,000 worth of biscuits.

Aaron Walsh, 25, of Adam Close, Liverpool, and Anthony Edgerton, 35, who is on remand at HMP Liverpool, admitted their roles in the theft via video link from their Merseyside prisons.

Newport Crown Court in South Wales heard how a trailer stacked with Jammie Dodgers and Cadbury's Chocolate Fingers was later found abandoned in Warrington, Cheshire.

The pair admitted their part in the theft at Burton's Biscuits in Cwmbran, Wales, on June 17 last year.

Appearing via video link from HMP Liverpool, Walsh pleaded guilty to taking an PS8,000 HGV trailer and his role in the Burton's Biscuits theft.

Edgerton, who appeared via video link from HMP Altcourse, also pleaded guilty to the biscuit theft, stealing the HGV trailer, and driving while disqualified.

He also admitted his part in an attempt to steal 1,980 cases of lager on May 17, 2015, from a factory in Hythe, Kent.

The two men will be sentenced by Judge David Williams on March 15 at Newport Crown Court.
