Rita Ora 'may be required' to give evidence at house raid trial

Rita Ora and her sister "may be required" to give evidence in the trial of a man accused of stealing goods worth £200,000 from the X Factor judge's home.

Harrow Crown Court heard a large amount of jewellery, iPhones, Apple Mac computers, bags and clothes were allegedly stolen in the raid.

Charaf Eddine Elmoudden, 26, pleaded not guilty to one count of burglary at the property in Harlesden, north-west London, on November 28 last year.

Wearing light blue jeans and a white, long-sleeved top, Elmoudden appeared before Judge John Anderson on Monday.

Prosecutor Mark Kinsey confirmed singer Ora, 25, and her sister, Elena, "may be required" to give evidence at the trial.

CCTV footage of the alleged burglary at the property could also be used as evidence.

Elmoudden, of Stonebridge, north London, was remanded in custody until his trial on June 6.

The trial is expected to take place over two or three days.
