Six members of an organised criminal gang that staged a million pound gold and silver bullion heist in Belgium were jailed for more than 23 years today.
The Old Bailey heard how the meticulously planned 'inside job' first came to light when Brian Mulcahy, 46, an international lorry driver from Essex, was found locked in his firm's bullion security van, claiming to have been the victim of a vicious armed robbery in Wetteren, Belgium.
What followed was a lengthy investigation by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Special Projects Team who worked closely with Europol and the Belgian police in Antwerp to unravel the intricate plot which involved a team of seven criminals.
