LATEST: Rocker Ozzy Osbourne has ordered extreme new security measures at his mansion to prevent a repeat of the $3.6 million (GBP2 million) jewellery theft earlier this week (22NOV04).

The former BLACK SABBATH star bravely held one of the two intruder's in a headlock and dangled him out of a window at his Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire home before the thief struggled free, escaping with irreplaceable gems, including his wife SHARON's wedding and engagement rings.

But the 55-year-old is making sure he's prepared for future trespassers, by hiring 24-hour security guards and installing laser "tripwires," guard dogs and a series of watchtowers.

An insider explains, "He's shocked and angry. He can't understand how what he thought was a good security system failed."
