A BARNSLEY teenager will appear in court today charged with burglary.

The 17-year-old - who cannot be named for legal reasons - is charged in connection to two incidents in Mapplewell on the weekend of August 12 and 13, where two houses were broken into.

Electrical items are said to have been stolen from one of the properties.

The boy has been remanded into custody to appear at Barnsley Youth Court later today.
