Susan Boyle still lives in her council house despite chart success

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested and charged in connection with a break-in at singer Susan Boyle's home in West Lothian, police said.

The incident at the Blackburn home of the Britain's Got Talent runner-up, happened on 26 January.

Ms Boyle, 48, disturbed the intruder as she returned home from London after recording a charity single for the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

Police said the boy will now be reported to the Children's Reporter.

A spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police said: "A 16-year-old youth has been arrested and charged in connection with a theft that happened at a property in Blackburn, on 26 January."

Despite her global success, Ms Boyle, has not moved from the council house she has lived in since she was a child.

Her album, I Dreamed A Dream, went straight to number one in the charts and became the best-selling debut in UK chart history.
