Movie beauty Kate Winslet could be the target of seasoned burglars - neighbours at her lavish English mansion have warned.

The Titanic actress has spent the last year renovating a stunning $5.4 million (GBP3 million) property in the picturesque Cotswolds, south England, creating a home for her young family.

But now neighbours in the sleepy Gloucestershire village of Church Westcote have been struck by a spate of robberies in the past few weeks and are now warning the Hollywood superstar to keep a close eye on the house.

The local NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH group leader TREVOR BIGG says, "I would advise to be vigilant and keep an eye out for their neighbour's property."

Winslet, husband Sam Mendes, her daughter Mia and their son Joe are currently living in New York.
