Gems worth £50 million stolen from heiress Tamara Ecclestone's home in west London

Heiress Tamara Ecclestone has been left shaken after a reported £50 million worth of gems were stolen from her London home.

All of her jewellery is said to have been stolen in the Friday night raid on her house next to Hyde Park after she left the country for her Christmas holidays.

Thieves are believed to have broken in through the garden before breaking into safes hidden in the bedroom she shares with her husband Jay Rutland, according to the Sun.

The paper reported that they fled with items including precious rings, earrings and a £80,000 Cartier bangle given to her as a wedding present.

A spokesman for Ecclestone, who has a five-year-old daughter, Sophia, said:

I can sadly confirm there has been a home invasion. Internal security are cooperating with police in this matter.
