A 28-year-old man has been charged with burgling the home of the parents of Arsenal footballer Theo Walcott.

Raiders struck at the house at Feldon, Hertfordshire, while the England international was playing in Arsenal's Champions League match with Barcelona.

A VW Golf car, jewellery and cash were among the items stolen.

A man from Chesham, Buckinghamshire, was remanded in custody until 21 March, when he is due to appear before magistrates in Hemel Hempstead.

Last week a 31-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead appeared at St Albans Magistrates' Court charged with burglary.
