Rapper's jewellery stolen

American rapper Lil' Kim had more than £150,000 worth of jewellery stolen yesterday as she boarded a flight in New York.

A mix-up at check-in meant the 27-year-old star's hand luggage was put in the hold.

The flight to Los Angeles from JFK airport was delayed while the bag was retrieved but a custom-made diamond-encrusted gold necklace and platinum and diamond dog tags were gone.

In 1995, a baggage handler at the airport stole £225,000 of jewellery from the Duchess of York.
