Neighbour slams cops who posed with Ian Wright but couldn’t probe her break-in
A burglary victim has hit out at police who she says were "too busy" to investigate a break-in at her home – while SIX cops posed for a photo with footballer Ian Wright nearby.
The former Premier League ace had his car stolen from Brent, north west London, on Wednesday before it was found dumped hours later.
The Arsenal ace posted a picture on Instagram of him posing with six officers, including a Tottenham supporter who found the stolen Mercedes.
The smiling snap incensed neighbour Natalie Neal, whose home in nearby Queen’s Park was burgled just hours before the car theft.
The newlywed had a number of precious family heirlooms stolen, including a pair of diamond earrings given to her as a wedding present by husband Adam.
Natalie, 40, claims a police forensics examiner dusted for fingerprints, but told her detectives were “too busy” to visit the crime scene, according to The Sun .
She told the newspaper: “I feel discriminated against because I am not a celebrity.
"I am genuinely happy for Ian Wright that he got his car back — he is a victim after all.
"But to see officers giving the thumbs-up and swapping football stories is hard to take when they supposedly don’t have the time to come to my ransacked home."
Wrighty took to social media to thank officers who found his motor hours after it was stolen.
It was used in an arson attack before it was found on Wednesday night.
The 54-year-old wrote on Instagram: "Car got nicked tonight and got found by a Tottenham fan policeman. Thank you so much."
TaxPayers’ Alliance spokesman James Price said: "It’s not right that taxpayers have crimes left uninvestigated because police want to pose with footballers."
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "These are separate incidents with different investigative opportunities."
