BBC Radio 1’s Chris Moyles has two cars stolen in burglary

The cars have since been recovered but no arrests have been made

BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles was the victim of a burglary this Thursday (August 23).

Burglars broke into the presenter’s home in Highgate, north London and stole two cars from his driveway. The vehicles, believed to be an Audi RS and a Mercedes ML63 AMG worth around £100,000, were later found six miles away in Colindale, north-west London.

It is not known whether other items were stolen and the burglars have yet to be caught. Moyles is believed to have been on holiday while the burglary took place. Scott Mills filled in for him on the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show all last week (August 20-24).

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We are investigating a burglary that took place on Thursday at an address in Highgate. Two vehicles that were stolen as a result of the burglary have been recovered and inquiries are continuing. There have been no arrests at this time.”

Moyles, 38, will end his eight-year stint as host of the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show next month (September). Fellow Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw was recently announced as his replacement. Moyles is contracted to the BBC until at least 2014 and is believed to be in negotiations about a new Radio 1 show.
