A FRAIL elderly widow turned into superwoman to send a burglar screaming from her home by battering him with a walking stick.

Doris Thiele, 84, hit 6ft 4in Leon Ingram round the head for EIGHT MINUTES while her daughter Helen, 59, held him in a headlock.

Terrified Ingram, 34, smashed his way through the conservatory doors with his HEAD to get away. The serial burglar left a trail of blood to a nearby flat, where he was arrested.

Doris, 5ft 3in, of New Milton, Hants, said: "I hope this sends a strong message to other burglars. If someone else comes they'll get more of the same." She and Helen won police bravery awards for their actions.Heroin user Ingram - described as a "one-man crimewave" - was jailed for three years after admitting burglary at  Southampton Crown Court. He had 32 previous convictions.

Terror ... Leon Ingram

Stick it to 'em ... Doris Thiele
