The theft of Chopard jewellery worth $1 million from the Cannes film festival was "almost certainly an inside job", police have claimed.

Detectives have confirmed that the hotel safe from which the jewellery was taken was not insured, the Daily Star reported.

The detectives are continuing to question an American working for Chopard, the Swiss jewellers and festival sponsors, who had the items in her room at the Cannes Novotel.
