A security guard working the night £25m-worth of the property was stolen from Tamara Ecclestone’s mansion has denied it was an inside job.
Ian Eltringham said, “virtually every room” in the building had been broken into on the night of 13 December 2019.
Another guard, Martin Akerman, described the aftermath of the successful raid as “absolute carnage”.
Maria Mester, Emil Bogdan Savastru, Alexandru Stan and Sorin Marcovici deny conspiracy to burgle.
Ms. Mester, 47, her 30-year-old son Mr. Savastru, Mr. Stan, 49, and Mr. Marcovici, 52, were the “support cast” to the burglars, jurors have heard.
Hours before the burglary Ms. Ecclestone, her husband Jay Rutland, and their daughter had left for Lapland on a family Christmas holiday, jurors were told.
At 22:00 GMT, three men were able to access Ms. Ecclestone’s home which is opposite Kensington Palace and on the same road as the Russian, Israeli and Romanian embassies.
