Plot to burgle Cilla Black’s Buckinghamshire home is foiled

Cilla Black’s son Robert Willis says it’s ‘inconceivable’ that people would stoop so low as to try and burgle Cilla‘s home after a plot was foiled earlier today.

Sky News reports that a circular hole was found in a perimeter fence of the late entertainer’s home in Denham, Buckinghamshire on Friday.

Her son, Robert Willis, said: “I cannot believe someone would stoop so low at a time like this. It’s inconceivable. Thankfully it was discovered in time.”

Later, her former publicist Nick Fiveash said: “A plot to burgle the Buckinghamshire home of the late Cilla Black has been foiled today. A professionally-cut circular hole was discovered in the perimeter fence of her Denham home ahead of her funeral on Thursday August 20.

“The police were immediately informed, 24-hour security has been increased on the property and all valuable assets including art, jewellery and her personal items have been removed and taken to a secured unit at an unknown location.”

Police are carrying out further investigations.

Meanwhile, a coroner ruled today that Cilla died from a head injury resulting from a fall at her Spanish villa.
