Actor Orlando Bloom is selling his Hollywood Hills home after it was burgled by the infamous Bling Ring gang.

The Lord Of The Rings star began renting out the property after it was broken into in 2009, charging tenants $16,500 (£11,000) a month, but he has now listed it for sale with an asking price of $4.5 million (£3 million).

Bloom, who now lives in New York with his wife Miranda Kerr, bought the four-bedroom property in 2007 for $2.75 million (£1.83 million).

It sits on almost an acre of land in a gated community and features an outdoor dining patio, pool and spa area.

A gang of teenagers known as the Bling Ring deliberately targeted the homes of the rich and famous in Los Angeles, stealing $3 million (£2 million) worth of clothes, jewellery and cash before cops swooped on seven suspects in 2009. The saga was immortalised in the 2013 movie starring Emma Watson.
