Former England captain John Terry had his £5million mansion raided by burglars after he shared snaps of himself enjoying a luxury skiing holiday with his family.

Alerting the gang of thieves that their home in Oxshott, Surrey, was currently empty while they vacationed in the French Alps, the footballer and his wife, Toni and their twin boy and girl, returned home to find £400,000 worth of goods had been stolen.

Allegedly wielding axes, the gang spent hours ransacking the property, swiping designer handbags worth £126,000 and rare signed first edition Harry Potter books valued at £18,000.
