Derby Telegraph - - NEWS -

FOUR peo­ple have been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the theft of a di­a­mond tiara from a coun­try es­tate.

The Port­land Tiara, part of a jew­ellery col­lec­tion at the Wel­beck Es­tate, was worn by the Duchess of Port­land to Ed­ward VII’s corona­tion in 1902.

The tiara, worth ‘at least six fig­ures’ was taken with a di­a­mond brooch on 20 Novem­ber.

Three men, 46, 38 and 33, and a 30-year-old woman have been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of bur­glary, fol­low­ing po­lice raids in Carl­ton, Cin­der­hill and Bul­well.

Not­ting­hamshire Po­lice said all four re­main in cus­tody and enquiries are on­go­ing. The stolen items have not been re­cov­ered. The force pre­vi­ously re­leased CCTV show­ing a trio of raiders us­ing power tools to break into the glass case where the tiara was housed. It also ap­pealed for in­for­ma­tion about a sil­ver Audi RS5 Quat­tro, regis­tra­tion KY61 USJ, burnt out in Blid­worth.
