Jamie Oliver’s home has been raided by burglars who evaded police and made off with a number of electrical items.

Police were called to the TV chef’s luxury pad in Primrose Hill when a neighbour noticed the door was open.

Mr Oliver, 40, and his family are thought to have been staying at their other home in Essex at the time of the break-in earlier this month. A spokesman for Mr Oliver said nobody was hurt in the raid and that only two electrical items were taken.

Police are now hunting the criminals responsible.

A police spokesman said: “Police were called to an address on Friday October 2 shortly after 9pm after a member of the public reported that a door to the property was open.

“Officers attended and went inside the property and found that the premises had been burgled. Items were removed from the address.”
