Thieves target Moss's £7m home

by  | 

A man has been arrested in connection with a burglary at Kate Moss's £7 million north London home.

The supermodel's home insurance cover will be put to the test after valuable artwork including an £80,000 Banksy portrait was snatched from the Maida Vale pad.

The thieves struck in the early hours while the 36-year-old and her partner guitarist Jamie Hince were sleeping in the house, according to the Daily Mirror.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Camden Police are investigating a burglary at Greville Road, NW6, from approximately 4.20am on Thursday, May 20.

"A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with it and inquiries are ongoing."

The theft is the latest incident in which Banksy works have been targeted by thieves following a smash-and-grab raid at an art gallery in New Compton Street earlier this month resulted in prints worth more than £16,000 being taken.

In 2007, 10 prints worth about £10,000 were stolen from a branch of Art Republic in Brighton.
