Chelsea star Cole rumbles burglars

Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole has rumbled burglars attempting to break into his home.

The Guardian reports the would-be raiders struck in the early hours yesterday at the house in Godalming, Surrey, apparently not expecting anyone to be at home.

The X Factor judge Cheryl Cole flew out to the US after performing at the Brits earlier this week, without her wedding ring.

But Ashley Cole, who faces new newspaper allegations linking him to other women, had decided to stay at home despite recent media attention.

In a statement, Surrey police said: "We can confirm that officers were called to a house in the Godalming area at around 4.30am on Thursday following reports of a break-in. Investigations are ongoing."
