Cilla Black’s home in south of England has been the intended target of a burglary that is believed to have been planned for during her funeral next week. According to her publicist, a hole in the fence surrounding her property in Denham, Buckinghamshire was discovered last week.

Nick Fiveash said in a statement that 24-hour security had been stepped up at the late star’s home after a hole was found in the perimeter fence on Friday (August 14th), just days before Cilla’s funeral is due to be held in the city of Liverpool next Thursday. Nothing has been stolen from the property, but a number of valuables have been removed to another, more secure location as a precaution.
