Banksy portrait snatched at Kate Moss's home
Valuable artwork including an £80,000 Banksy portrait was stolen from Kate Moss's home, it was reported today.
Thieves raided the model's £7 million home in Maida Vale, north London, in the early hours of yesterday.
Moss, 36, her partner Jamie Hince and mother Linda were believed to be asleep in the house at the time, the Daily Mirror reported.
A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with the burglary and inquiries are ongoing, police said.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Camden Police are investigating a burglary at Greville Road, NW6, from approximately 4.20am on Thursday, May 20.
"A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with it and inquiries are ongoing."
It is not the first time works by guerilla artist Banksy were targeted by thieves.
Police are hunting a man and a woman who smashed their way into an art gallery in New Compton Street, central London, earlier this month and snatched Banksy prints worth more than £16,000.
In 2007, 10 prints worth about £10,000 were stolen from a branch of Art Republic in Brighton.
