DAME Shirley Bassey is scared to travel to London after she was the victim of a robbery while shopping in the British capital.
The singer, 70, was shopping with her daughter in Knightsbridge when a thief stole her purse.
She says, "I was with my daughter and we got out of my car and decided to walk when someone bumped into me. I looked the other way and before I knew it they've got my purse. It's shocking, whoever it was must have followed me.
"It's awful to think that I can walk safely in my home town of Monte Carlo but not in London."
The incident happened last month (Oct07) on Bassey's return to Britain to present a Q Award to British rockers the Arctic Monkeys.
