Warning over social media holiday snaps after John Terry burglary | London

A gang of burglars who deliberately targetted the mansion of former England captain John Terry after he posted pictures of his family skiing on Instagram have been jailed for nearly 28 years.

The former Chelsea footballer was on a skiing holiday with his family when their £5 million mansion was raided and ransacked in February.

Darren Eastaugh, 30, Joshua Sumer, 27, Roy Head, 28, and Oliver Hart, 25, were jailed for a total of 27 years and 11 months at Kingston Crown Court.

A fifth man Kye Hardy-King, 25, pleaded guilty to one count of handling stolen goods when some of the stolen property was found at his home.

Terry’s mansion in Oxshott, Surrey, was targeted in February after the player posted pictures from the slopes of the French Alps with his wife Toni, telling his 3.4 million Instagram followers that he was having a “great few days away skiing with the family”.

The thieves took the chance to help themselves to property including designer handbags worth £126,00, more than £220,000 of jewellery and rare signed first edition Harry Potter books valued at £18,000.

Insurance companies warn posting pictures while on holiday could count against you when making a claim.
