BREAKING NEWS: Man arrested in connection with Hatton Garden heist

Reports are emerging today (March 28) that a man has been arrested and items seized in connection with the Hatton Garden heist which took place over Easter weekend almost three years ago.

According to the reports, a 57-year-old man was arrested yesterday (March 27) after a search was carried out at an address in Islington.

The man is now in custody at a police station in North London.

Six men have already been arrested for their part in the raid at 88-90 Hatton Garden over Easter 2015, which has since been dubbed the biggest burglary in English legal history.

One of the men, Terence Perkins, has since died. He passed away in HM Prison Belmarsh on February 5 of this year, aged 69.

On January 30 this year, the gang members were ordered to pay back £27.5m between them or have their sentences increased.

Although six men were sentenced for their part in the crime in March 2016, another thief, referred to by some media reports as “Basil”, was said to still be at large.

The goods stolen during the heist were estimated to total £13.7m when a total of 73 safety deposit boxes were raided.
