Security is likely to be pretty tight at the sprawling mansion that is home to multi-millionaire footballer John Terry and his family.

But it seems the Chelsea defender is taking extra precautions these days, as he was spotted browsing the covert cameras and bugging devices on offer in a London spy shop.

Gadgets on sale at the Spymaster range from night-vision goggles and bullet-proof leather jackets, to a tiny video camera concealed in a box of tissues.

Terry, 31, was said to have asked staff for a demonstration of some of the products on sale during his visit to the shop.

On its website Spymaster is described as the city's best-equipped spy shop 'providing for all your surveillance, counter-surveillance, personal protection and related security needs'.

It says Spymaster offers a 'discreet and confidential service'.

Alongside the document scanners and spy phones, the store also stocks Luminox watches, which are worn by military groups including the U.S. Airforce and the Navy SEALS.

Should he have been in the mood to indulge his inner James Bond further, Terry could have also picked up a handheld bug detector or a document scanner.

England scraped their way clear at the top of World Cup qualifying Group H after weathering a storm of a very different kind in Warsaw.

Less than 24 hours after the original fixture was washed away, Roy Hodgson's side managed a share of the points under the roof in Warsaw.

The hosts looked sharper during the opening 45 minutes but it was England who went in at the break with their noses in front.

Wayne Rooney certainly attempted a header from Steven Gerrard's corner and the ball hit his shoulder before ending up in the back of the net.

The Poles looked lively from the start of the second half and continued to put pressure on the visitors but Jermain Defoe had a chance to put the game to be when he fluffed his lines from close range following another delivery from Gerrard.

Rooney had England's next chance but he blasted over from a Danny Welbeck pass and England were made to pay as Poland went up the pitch and scored – Kamil Gilk heading home with Joe Hart stranded.

Full report to follow…

Anton Ferdinand and John Terry: Handshake ruled out

FA scrap Loftus Road handshake to avoid escalating tensions between Ferdinand and Terry

Anton Ferdinand was spared having to shake John Terry's hand before QPR's FA Cup clash with Chelsea.

The Football Association gave the clubs permission not to take part in the traditional pre-match handshake, amid uncertainty as to whether Rangers defender Ferdinand would snub Terry.

Saturday is the first time the two sides have met since Terry was charged with racially abusing Ferdinand during October's Premier League game between the two.

Terry has denied the offence and Ferdinand was reportedly agonising over whether or not to accept his hand.

The FA released a statement, which
read: 'Following discussions on Friday evening and Saturday morning
involving senior officials from QPR, Chelsea and the FA, it has been
agreed there will not be the usual team handshake before today's FA Cup
fourth-round tie at Loftus Road.

'The FA agreed to the request by both clubs in an attempt to further defuse tensions before the match.'

Those tensions were raised on Friday
night when Metropolitan Police announced they were investigating a
'malicious communication' sent to QPR and addressed to Ferdinand.

There were reports the package contained a bullet but the contents remained unconfirmed by both police and the club on Saturday.

But the matter was serious enough to
prompt Rangers and Chelsea to announce all fans entering Loftus Road
would be subject to 'full searches' before entering the ground.

Stewards were seen using handheld
metal detectors, with some donning protective goggles, while there was a
heavier than usual police presence.
