Ricky Hatton Burgled After Tweeting He Would Be Away For The Weekend

Boxer Ricky Hatton has been burgled after posting on Twitter that he would be away from his home.

Opportunist thieves broke into the Hyde, Greater Manchester property, making off with two Rolex watches, credit cards and an undisclosed number of €500 notes, the Telegraph reports.

Hatton had tweeted his 423,000 followers on 30 January that he was heading to London to appear on a Sky football pundit show and to watch the Chelsea v Man City game at Stamford Bridge.
