Jack Harries reported that his phone, wallet and passport were stolen – in addition to the twins’ camera equipment. Also among the stolen items was an old film camera given to Jack by his mum.
The pair have confirmed that although very upset, nobody was harmed during the incident. It occurred while they were in transit from filming with non-profit organisation The School Fund.
Always remember your life can end at any second. Live how you want to live and love who you want to love. Don't take anything for granted.

Christian Turner, the British High Commissioner in Niarobi, has since been in contact to offer support. The twins plan to visit the British Embassy in Nairobi.

The incident occurred just two weeks after vlogger Louis Cole had his bag stolen in London, which contained his camera equipment, laptop and passport.
