The supermodel is believed to have been asleep with boyfriend Jamie Hince ,42,  during the 4am robbery.

Her mother Linda, 59, was also in the  home at the time, and police believe the gang may have fled the scene after waking either Linda or Jamie, who is a guitarist with the band The Kills.

A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with the raid after being stopped by police in a street nearby.  

However, police have not recovered any of the stolen artworks and detectives are still believed to be hunting at least one suspect.

The theft of a Banksy work of art is the second in recent weeks.   Police are also hunting a man and a smartly dressed woman who smashed their way into an art gallery in New Compton Street, London, earlier this month and snatched Banksy prints worth more than $25,000.

The famous anonymous British graffiti style artist’s work is favored by many celebrities with Brad Pitt, Madonna, Simon Cowell and Dennis Hopper all owning pieces of his unusual art.
