55,000 raid on Duke of Kent’s home

Police were alerted by alarms linked to Henley police station, Oxon. From Crocker End House in nearby Nettlebed, but the burglars had fled before officers arrived.
The Duke and Duchess were away at the time of the raid, at 5am on Monday.
But Nicholas Adamson, their private secretary, said a caretaker had been in staff quarters. „The police were there within two or three minutes”, he said.
„It was an excellent tresponse but the burglars had gone. It does not look as though they had targeted specific items.”
As well as the alarm system, the house and grounds are covered by security lights linked to sensors.
„Clearly, security will be looked at to see if it can be improved”, Mr Adamson said. „But I cannot see this meaning that the Duke and Duchess will want to leave the house; they are very fond of it.”
