Armed Gang 'Break into Kurt Zouma's £3m Home and Steal £100K in Cash and Jewellery'

West Ham star Kurt Zouma and his family have been left 'traumatised' after an armed gang raided their £3million home and stole £100,000 in cash and jewellery. 

The gang of thugs ransacked The Hammers' captain's Essex mansion late on Saturday night while he was relaxing with his wife Sandra and their children. 

Frenchman Zouma, 29, was missing from West Ham's squad on Sunday as they drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace following the raid - which prompted a warning from cops to neighbours amid fears an organised crime group could strike again. 

Zouma and his loved ones have been left 'too scared to stay at home', with a source telling The Sun: 'Kurt and the family were put through an horrific ordeal, and are still struggling to speak about what happened... Kurt is a family man and in shock. He is worried about protecting his family.'

News of the ordeal left West Ham fans stunned - with the club today offering a £25,000 reward for information leading to the gang's capture.
