The locks at the Tower of London, home to the Crown Jewels, had to be changed after a burglar broke in and stole keys.

The intruder scaled gates and took the keys from a sentry post.

Guards spotted him but couldn't give chase as they are not allowed to leave their posts.

The keys included ones to unlock drawbridges, according to The Sun.

Thousands had to be spent changing the locks after the blunder.

Officials insisted that the Crown Jewels were never at risk of being stolen.
