Burglars stole more than a half a million pounds worth of luxury items after targeting homes including Manchester City footballer Raheem Sterling – a court has heard.

Thomas Mee, 42, Vincent Ball, 52 and John Barlow, 58, all from Liverpool, admitted conspiracy to burgle homes across the UK, Chester Crown Court .

Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay’s house in Buckinghamshire was among those targeted by the gang, as well as the homes of Bury FC chairman Steve Dale and Mansfield Town FC owner John Radford.

The court heard the defendants attempted to burgle Sterling’s home in Goostrey, Cheshire, on November 4, 2018 – but the alarm was sounded and nothing was taken.
