The heiress to the £310million Berkeley Homes empire is being hunted by police after allegedly assaulting two police officers.

Ms Pidgley’s ex-boyfriend Antonio Henry was jailed in March this year for beating her up at her home in Earl’s Court, west London.

He hurled a chair and an oil radiator at a terrified Ms Pidgley, and slammed a door on her hand as she tried to flee, leaving her with two broken fingers. 

Pidgley claimed that Henry ‘wouldn’t leave her alone’ when she broke off their four-month relationship. 

On the day of the attack, she heard a smash at her home in Earl’s Court and found Henry standing in her bedroom when she went to investigate.

Henry then threatened to come back and carry out an acid attack in the assault last June.

 Her mother, Denize Hewitt, 53, said her receptionist daughter call for help during the attack.

She told The Sun: ‘She screamed down the phone. I dialled 999. I thought she would be dead.’

She was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

After the vicious assault the granddaughter of Berkeley Homes founder Tony Pidgley, urged other victims of domestic violence to seek help.

The 26-year-old told the Sun on Sunday: ‘If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.

‘I want to encourage others in abusive relationships to get help before things escalate.’

A Met spokesman had said at the time: ‘Police were called at 20:05hrs on Monday, 18 June to a residential address in Warwick Road, Kensington and Chelsea, following reports of a female resident having been assaulted.

‘Officers attended with LAS [London Ambulance Service] colleagues.

‘The victim had been at home at the time; after hearing a smash, she went to her bedroom and discovered a 29-year-old male, who was known to her, had broken into the premises.

‘The male then attacked the victim before fleeing the scene.

‘The victim was conveyed to a central London hospital where her injuries were deemed not life-threatening or life-changing.’

Tony Pidgley: The boy adopted by travellers who grew up to found the UK’s largest housebuilder

Tony Pidgley has earned close to £115million in the last 16 years as the founder and now chairman of leading housebuilder Berkeley Homes.

However he had a very humble upbringing, having been born in 1947 in Surrey to a single mother. 

His early years were full of hardship, and he spent his early life living in a disused railway carriage.

A former Barnado’s boy who was adopted and raised by travellers, Pidgley left school at 15 to start his own haulage business.

During his childhood, he also worked with his adoptive parents cutting down trees and selling the logs.

He sold he haulage firm when he was 19 and co-founded Berkeley Group in 1976, while he was still in his 20s, which he developed into a FTSE 100 high-flyer.

Pidgley’s wealth is widely seen in the City as just rewards for entrepreneurialism and risk-taking, whereas many other chief executives are seen as managers who have hauled in excessive rewards.
