Billionaire heiress Tamara Ecclestone and her family ‘shaken’ after Jewelry ‘worth £50m’ is stolen from her home
Tamara Ecclestone, daughter to billionaire and former owner of Formula One Racing, Bernie Ecclestone has been robbed of jewelry estimated to be worth £50m in her London home.
The robbers entered into her home on Friday night through the garden, then gained access to safes that were hidden in her master bedroom. The thieves took precious rings and earrings, as well as a Cartier bangle worth £80,000.
The robbery incident has come as a shock to the family and even police as Tamara’s mansion which she lives in with her husband is located in one of the most secure places in London as it sits in a private road close to Kensington Palace and a number of foreign embassies..
A spokesman for Ms Ecclestone said to Sun UK: “I can sadly confirm there has been a home invasion. Internal security are co-operating with police in this matter.
“Tamara and family are well but obviously angry and shaken by the incident.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called to a residential property in Palace Green, W8, at 11.11pm on Friday 13 December to reports of a burglary.
“Officers attended. It was reported that an amount of high value jewellery had been stolen.
“There have been no arrests. Enquiries continue.”
