THE Welsh Mezzo-soprano singer Katherine Jenkins heroically stepped in to intervene in a day-light street mugging whilst on her way to perform at the Straubenzee Memorial charity carol service at St Luke's Church. On her way to the event, the 39-year-old, whilst walking down King's Road in Chelsea at about 3.15pm, witnessed an old woman being mugged.

According to the MailOnline, Scotland Yard confirmed that police had been called at 15.10pm on Wednesday after the robbery was reported.
