Christine Lampard ‘struggles to sleep’ and ‘fears for daughter’s safety’ after home burglary

TV presenter Christine Lampard has said her sleep has been affected since thieves broke into her home and stole her and husband Frank's belongings.

Alessandro Donati, Jugoslav Jovanovic, and Alessandro Maltese were jailed for a total of 28 years at after they stole millions of pounds worth of possessions from several victims. The trio of criminals stole £60,000 of the married couples' valuables.

Christine said in her impact statement, read out in Isleworth Crown Court: "I have struggled to sleep sometimes since the incident as I am sensitive to any noise from outside fearing another attack."

“Since this break-in at my house, I am much more fearful of being alone in my own home, I am less trusting of visitors to the house and feel unsafe in my home."

She added: “I have a young daughter and feel vulnerable in a home which I had previously always felt safe and happy in."

Her husband, the former footballer-turned manager Frank Lampard also shared the struggles he has suffered. He also stated the effects of the break-in that took place in December 2019.

The 43 year old said in his impact statement: "The fact that my job means that I travel frequently again raises my concerns. Neither Christine nor I are sleeping too well as a consequence of this incident."


He continued: “I would add that while I have been an unfortunate victim of a crime previously, particularly burglary, this incident has had a far greater impact on our lives."

The criminal gang were extradited from Italy and pleaded guilty to conspiracy to burgle. They also broke into socialite and TV personality Tamara Ecclestone's mansion and the stolen goods, including valuable watches and jewellery, have still not been recovered.

The thieves' stolen goods had an estimated value of £26 million. Prosecutor Timothy Cray QC said the gang had "planned and executed the highest value burglaries that have ever come to light in the United Kingdom."

He added: "The burglaries involved careful research and reconnaissance. In particular, the victims were deliberately targeted because of their wealth and public profiles."
