Hatton Garden burglary

Detective Superintendent Craig Turner, Head of the Flying Squad has appeared on BBC1 Crimewatch this evening, Thursday, 23 April to appeal for witnesses to the Hatton Garden burglary which took place over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

Detective Superintendent Turner announced a reward of £20,000 for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of all those responsible for the burglary at Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd, 88-90 Hatton Garden.

Images captured on CCTV of the thieves entering and leaving the scene of the burglary were issued in an attempt to jog people’s memories.

Detectives have also released an image of the actual drill used to bore through the wall inside the vault.

We know that the thieves initially entered the building after 2100hrs on Thursday, 2 April and left shortly after 0800hrs on Good Friday, 3 April.

They returned to the scene soon after 2200hrs on Saturday, 4 April and were recorded on CCTV leaving the premises at around 0640hrs on Easter Sunday, 5 April.

On both days male (A) makes his way to the side exit of Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd where he lets the other gang members into the building.

Fourteen CCTV images we are releasing today show six men entering and leaving Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd.
