Rita Ora 'steps up security at her London home'

Rita Ora 'steps up security at her London home'

Rita Ora has reportedly increased security at her London home after she was recently burgled.

The 25-year-old singer has paid for extensive renovation work at her £1.3 million mansion after cash and personal items worth thousands of pounds were pinched during the break-in.

A neighbour, who didn't want to be identified, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "They've really ramped up security since.

"There were men installing cameras and lights. It resembles Fort Knox now."

The news comes shortly after the police released CCTV stills of two men they think may be connected to the burglary.

Meanwhile, DC Karen Beck, who is leading the investigation for Brent CID, has called on anyone with any information regarding the incident to come forward.

She said: "Burglary is a very intrusive crime, and all the more distressing when an occupant actually comes face to face with the burglar.

"We are appealing for anyone who recognises the men in the two images to contact us.

"We are also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen these men in or around the area, before or after the burglary."

Rita's luxurious property was burgled seven days before Simon Cowell's mansion was also raided and it's previously been speculated that the two incidents may be linked.
