A thief masquerading as a rich property investor is suspected of stealing jewellery worth £500,000 from Bernie Ecclestone's daughter's mansion during a viewing.

The items vanished from Petra Ecclestone's £32 million central London home when the man, posing as "Oleg from Kazakhstan", viewed the six-bedroom terrace a few weeks ago, it was reported.

Miss Ecclestone, 24, was out at the time but when she returned she discovered a pair of diamond ear-rings and a diamond Rolex watch had disappeared from a bedroom nightstand, the Daily Mail reported.

There was no answer today at the listed Belgravia property, which boasts six bathrooms, a cinema room and a gym.
