Tamara Ecclestone, 35, has been left “angry and shaken” after burglars broke into her Kensington home and snatched £50 million worth of jewellery on Friday night, it has been reported. Sources say that three thieves broke in and stole the gems shortly after she and her family left the mansion for the Christmas holidays.
The daughter of billionaire tycoon Bernie Ecclestone, lives in the 57-room residence with her husband Jay Rutland and her five-year-old daughter Sophia.
The family had reportedly headed off on their Christmas holidays abroad when their lavish home was targeted by brazen robbers.
It’s been said that they had only been out of the house a matter of hours before the robbers struck.
The £70 million property is situated on one of London’s most exclusive streets dubbed ‘Billionaire’s Row’ in Kensington, West London, and is home to some of the wealthiest households in the UK.
It has 24-hour security that patrol down the street and are present in each home.
But according to The Sun, the thieves evaded the security teams by entering the property through the back garden.
