Mr Rayson has been remanded in custody to appear at Aylesbury Crown Court for sentencing on March 23.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Chris Clarke said: “I am pleased that Danny Rayson has pleaded guilty to the charges he faced.

“These offences caused serious damage to businesses and were committed over a short period of time.

“Rayson mostly targeted charities and small independent businesses in Buckingham, showing no regard for the impact his actions had on the local community.”
