RICHARD HAMMOND: The Grand Tour star was reportedly burgled in a midnight raid

Hammond, 48, and his family were thought to have been at home at the time as the Grand Tour star is recovering from a horror crash from last year.

He was driving a ยฃ2million supercar in Switzerland when he lost control and the vehicle flipped and bursts into flames.

According to The Mirror, one shocked local said: โ€œIf he was burgled they must have used a helicopter to get in and out โ€“ as he does.

Richard lives with wife Mindy and teenage daughters Willow and Isabella, but villagers say they rarely see the family.

West Mercia Police confirmed: โ€œWe received reports that a burglary may have been in progress and officers attended. An investigation is ongoing.โ€

Meanwhile it is rumoured that Grand Tour wonโ€™t be commissioned for a fourth series.

However frontman Jeremy Clarkson has called the claims โ€œhilariousโ€.
