The alarm system is on the wall — once Sam Smith gets permission from the council

The alarm system is on the wall — once Sam Smith gets permission from the council

Sam Smith is reported to be stepping up the security at their £12m London home after being burgled twice inside a year. In 2014, thieves took advantage of Smith being on the bill at Glastonbury and ransacked the artist's former South London home while he was on stage.

 

 

Built in 1736, Smith's Georgian house — once the abode of author Sir Kingsley Amis — boasts celebrity neighbours including Jude Law and Boy George. But it won't be as simple as getting a bloke in a van round. The mansion is Grade II-listed in a conservation area, so they need permission from the council first.
