The Sun reports that on bonfire night a man managed to break in to the Tower of London and steal a set of keys.

The paper says that despite a man being spotted guards were unable to move from their posts and had to radio for help. No-one was caught.

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that there has been an allegation of theft from the Tower and that they have launched an investigation.
