Man charged with burgling Simon Cowell

A man has been charged with burglary after a break-in at Simon Cowell's west London mansion.

It happened while The X Factor supremo, his partner Lauren Silverman and baby son Eric were asleep.

The intruder stole cash and jewellery from their multi-million pound home in Holland Park.

Cowell has previously said he was left shaken by the raid and feared for Eric's safety.

Darren February, 32, has been charged with burglary following the incident last December.

He was arrested after being tackled by a security guard who drove after him.

February is due to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on 5 October.
