Television presenter Declan Donnelly’s £5 million home was targeted by professional thieves while he and his family slept, it has been reported.

Police were dispatched to the West London property shortly before 1am on Tuesday after receiving an emergency call, but the gang sped away from the scene before the officers arrived, according to The Sun.

Mr Donnelly, 45, his wife Ali, 43, and their young daughter, Isla, were asleep at the time of the attempted burglary.

The thieves were reportedly detected on the extensive security at the address.

The Met Police said: “Police were called at approximately 00:40hrs to reports of an attempted burglary at a residential property. Officers attended.

“The suspects had left the scene prior to police arrival.

“There was no evidence that they had gained access to the property.

“Inquiries are ongoing. At this early stage, there have been no arrests.”

It is not known who made the call to 999.

A spokesperson for Mr Donnelly declined a request to comment.
