A courier left around 3.5 million euros worth of jewelry in an airplane. The woman had brought it for singer Rita Ora, but according to the police forgot her hand luggage and coat when she got off at the airport of the French city of Nice.

The courier saw her mistake too late. The plane with the precious cargo had already left for London. There the jewels could be taken out of the device. They then flew to Nice. “Someone with their heads in the clouds lost nearly a few million,” a police source joked at AFP.

A luxury brand had lent the jewels to Ora (28). She could then wear it at the Cannes film festival.
