French investigators are keeping the brother of Kim Kardashian West's Paris chauffeur in police custody as part of their investigation into October's 10 million dollar (£8.1 million) jewellery heist.

Authorities have decided to keep 27-year-old Gary Madar, as well as nine other people, in custody after they released three men and a woman on Wednesday night.

Madar worked for the same car service company as his chauffeur brother Michael Madar, 40.

Authorities are focusing on the possibility that the robbery was an inside job.

It comes as the reality star used Instagram to reveal she is jetting to Dubai for her first major public appearance since the Paris ordeal, headlining a Friday masterclass by her make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic.
