An international concert pianist spoke of her terror when she and her family were robbed at knifepoint of jewellery worth pounds 20,000.

Marguerite Wolff, 78, who has played in concert halls around the world in a career spanning half a century, had a combat knife held to her throat during the ordeal on Friday, which she said left her in a state of "naked terror". She, her daughter and two grandchildren cowered in silence for an hour-and-a-half after the break-in, fearing the burglars were still in the house in Belgravia, London.
