AN unemployed Crouch End man has been sentenced to four years in prison after he was found guilty of two cashpoint robberies and one attempted robbery in the Broadway.

Robert Keavey, 30, of Weston Park, targeted a woman on August 26 and a man on September 3 last year, Wood Green Crown Court heard.

He was also convicted after a six-day trial of an attempted robbery on another woman at an ATM on September 5 last year.

Sentenced at Wood Green Crown Court on Wednesday Keavey was told he would only serve two years of the four year sentence.

The court heard that he had a troubled life after his mother and father died, had a crack cocaine and heroin addiction and was "disgusted by his actions".

Judge Juliet May said: "Without tackling these issues, you will remain a liability to yourself and the public. It will be long and hard to overcome them but only you can do it.
