    Billionaire businessman Caudwell suffers injury in burglary

    Billionaire businessman Caudwell suffers injury in burglary

    A billionaire businessman sustained a head injury during a burglary at his £7.5m home on Monday.

    Former Phones4U chief John Caudwell, who sold his Caudwell Group for £1.4bn in 2006, was tied up by invaders at his home, Broughton Hall, in Eccleshall, Staffordshire, while they helped themselves to all his jewellery and a sum of cash.

    They also assaulted his fiancée, Claire Johnson, and a 22-year-old female member of staff, although neither suffered injury, reports the Guardian.

    Police believe that the 57-year-old entrepreneur, who is closely involved with charity projects through his Caudwell Children Concern, was struck with an iron bar by the intruders, who were later seen running through fields near the property.

    In a statement, Mr Caudwell said: “On Monday evening at 8.15pm, a group broke into my home and burst into the kitchen. In attempting to defend myself and my family, I was attacked by a man with a crowbar.

    “I suffered a gash to my forehead, to my elbow and damage to my other arm and my back. They took every item of jewellery that Claire and I possessed, plus some cash.

    “Thankfully, nobody else was hurt physically, although no doubt the shock of the event and the brutal actions and language of the attackers will live on for some time.”
