‘My family’s taxes are not used’: Tamara Beckwith furious to discover car broken into outside central London mansion by ‘idiots’
Tamara Beckwith took to Instagram to express her frustration at her car being broken into outside her central London mansion on Thursday afternoon.
The TV personality, 51, had smashed the back window of her car and was furious that her “family taxes” were not being used to prevent the crime.
She told her followers, “I never leave anything of value in my car, so my only consolation is that the idiot/thief who decided to smash the rear window will be deeply disappointed with his loot of old school uniform.”

The car robbery was not the first time Tamara had come into contact with robbers, as she had previously witnessed the foiling of a break-in at her neighbor’s mansion in Belgravia in 2015.
The TV personality heard “super, super loud” booms as officers threw smoke grenades to take out a gang of four alleged burglars after they watched a flat for days.
Police in bulletproof vests dove into the multimillion-pound home in Eaton Place and arrested the four suspects after they allegedly broke into the house.

The star was known for being a member of the “IT Girls” and best friends with the late Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.
The TV personality was tragically found dead in her London flat in February 2017 at the age of 45.
Tamara and Tara were famous for their way of partying, fizzing, traveling on private jets and their disastrous love lives.
During a performance on Loose Women, Tamara recalls, “We were kind of naive in a way where we thought it was all just great fun, if you don’t have a real job you don’t have to check in at 8am.

“It wasn’t like I was in a horrible environment and struggling for myself. It was a fantastic time for my mother because she had this little baby, even though she was a grandmother, she got a new life.
She continued: “Tara and I, we’ve done so many jobs together, we were just booked together like a lot of other girls, the problem with Tara is we’ve always had a baby.
“I’ve always had a strong family behind me, whether they’ve been able to control me the whole time is a bit trickier. We always had Sunday lunch. We just had to function’.
