Susan Boyle finds intruder in house
Singer Susan Boyle returned home to find an intruder inside her house, police said today.
The man ran out of the house in Blackburn, West Lothian, when she opened the front door last night.
She had just flown back to Scotland from London where she had been helping to record the Helping Haiti single, The Sun reported.
Police detained a man in connection with the incident but he was later released. Investigations are continuing.
A spokesman said: "Lothian and Borders Police were called to an address in Blackburn at around 9.50pm yesterday following reports of a disturbance.
"A man was detained in connection with the incident and released pending further inquiries."
The 48-year-old church worker became an international star after her performance of a hit song from Les Miserables wowed the audience and judges on Britain's Got Talent last year.
Her album, I Dreamed A Dream, went straight to number one in the charts and achieved the best first week's sale for a debut.
Despite her fame she has not moved from the council house she has lived in since she was a child.
