The Sun reports that a burglar managed to get past the guards to steal a set of keys. Despite being spotted, he was able to get away, as guards were unable to leave their posts and cries for help over their radios were not heeded.

The locks have now had to be changed at a cost of thousands of pounds.

Officials have insisted that the Crown Jewels were never at risk of being stolen.
