Four men responsible for the theft of gold and jewellery from a vault in Hatton Garden - including one man from Dartford - have been ordered to pay back more than £6 million or each serve an extra seven years in jail.

Following a one-week hearing at Southwark Crown Court, Dartford resident Brian Reader, along with Terry Perkins, John Collins and Daniel Jones, was made subject of the confiscation order as a result of involvement in the 2015 burglary.

All were found to have jointly obtained the whole of the proceeds of the burglary, with a calculated value of £13,690,331.75.

Mark Bedford, Detective Chief Inspector, said: “This thorough investigation, in partnership with the Crown Prosecution Service, has resulted in these Proceeds of Crime orders which will ensure the defendants are prevented from enjoying any financial benefit from this audacious burglary, and demonstrates the Met’s determination to ensure that crime does not pay.”
