Three men have been found guilty of involvement in the Hatton Garden raid trial.

Carl Wood, 58, William Lincoln, 60 and Hugh Doyle, 48 have been convicted of involvement in the heist, which took place over the Easter weekend last year.

An estimated £14 million of jewellery and valuables were stolen during the raid, making it the “largest burglary in English legal history.”

Jon Harbinson, 48, a nephew of Lincoln, was cleared of involvement in the raid.

Four men previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary.

The trial started on November 24 in Woolwich Crown Court.

The jury heard that the gang used a drill to bore a hole through the metre-wide wall of the vault, before raiding 73 safety deposit boxes.

As the case unfolded the jury also heard that the oldest man involved in the raid was convicted over the infamous Brink’s Mat robbery in 1983.

Wood and Lincoln will be sentenced on March 7 while legal discussions are due to take place later regarding the sentencing of Hugh Doyle.

It can now be reported that Perkins’ daughter, Terri Robinson, 35, also faces being jailed. She pleaded guilty to concealing, converting or transferring criminal property.

Her brother-in-law, Brenn Walters, 43, who is also known as Ben Perkins, admitted the same offence.
