A man who has admitted his part in the Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd raid over the Easter weekend has said he is willing to reveal to the police where he has hidden his share of the stolen goods.
Danny Jones, 58, says he wants to be taken out of his high security jail to hand back what he stole.
Writing to Sky News crime correspondent, Martin Brunt, Jones said: “I’ve instructed my solicitor to tell the police Flying Squad that I want to give back my share of (the) Hatton Garden burglary, they said it’s in motion.
“The police can’t want it back, as I’m the only person in the world to no (know) where it is, deep down. I want to do the right thing and give it back.”
Jones is one of four men who have pleaded guilty to the Hatton Garden raid on September 4.
So far five others have denied involvement and are to stand trial next month, while four others are accused of money laundering and have yet to enter pleas.
This week a pre-trial hearing heard that police now believed that up to £20m worth of jewellery, gems and cash was stolen in the raid and “a significant amount” had still not been recovered.
