The trial of four men charged over the Hatton Garden jewellery heist is due to begin on Monday.

Precious gems and other valuables worth up to £20 million were stolen when thieves broke into Hatton Garden Safe Deposit over the Easter weekend earlier this year.

Carl Wood, 58, of Cheshunt, Hertfordshire; William Lincoln, 60, of Bethnal Green, east London and Jon Harbinson, 42, of Benfleet, Essex, are charged with conspiracy to commit burglary. Hugh Doyle, 48, of Enfield, north London, is charged with conspiracy to conceal, convert or transfer criminal property.

They all deny the charges. The trial is due to take place at Woolwich Crown Court in south east London.
