Police have released today the images of two men suspected of carrying out a burglary at the Kensal Rise home of X Factor judge Rita Ora.

The two men were caught on CCTV during the break-in which took place between 5am and 6am on November 28.

The suspects made a number of trips in and out of the £1.3million home as her relatives slept escaping with valuable possessions.

They fled the scene after one of occupants in the house woke up and screamed.

One of the burglars has been described as dark skinned, possibly of Arabic descent. He was wearing a dark jacked with a fur-lined hood.

DC Karen Beck, who is leading the investigation said: “Burglary is a very intrusive crime, and all the more distressing when an occupant actually comes face to face with the burglar.

The aggravated burglary occurred close to the home of former England and Arsenal footballer Ian Wright whose family was targeted in June last year.

The 51-year-old was away covering the World Cup in Brazil when intruders forced their way in and held his wife Nancy, 40, at knifepoint before forcing her to hand over the key to the safe.

Their two daughters, who were also home at the time, slept through the robbery.

Anyone with any information that could assist police is asked to call DC Karen Beck on 020 8733 3384 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via crimestoppers-uk.org.
