A multi-millionaire landlord who banned 'coloured tenants' from his property empire has put up a £10,000 reward after he claims a 'Romanian man' robbed his house.

Fergus Wilson, who had previously been dubbed as 'Britain's most hated landlord' had cash and a Nikon camera stolen from his property in Kent on Saturday.

The 70-year-old had previously hit headlines after a court overturned his ban on 'coloured tenants' because they left 'curry' smells in his homes in court in 2017.

Now the landlord, who amassed a buy-to-let empire of about 1,000 homes at the peak of his power, claimed a 'Romanian man' raided his home.

Police confirmed there had been a break-in in Boughton Monchelsea, which is near Maidstone, Kent, between 11.45am and 12.10pm on Saturday.

In a short letter reporting the incident to police, he said: 'We were burgled today by a Romanian man.

'I wish to put up a £10,000 reward for information leading to the successful prosecution of the culprit.'

A spokesman for Kent Police confirmed they were investigating the incident, but said that they were not able to confirm the nationality of the alleged culprit.
