Eight men also connected to the raid have been charged and remanded in custody pending a court date on June 4.

A tenth man, aged 43, has been bailed pending further inquiries.

Earlier this week, London Diamond Bourse president Harry Levy, who’s been heavily involved in supporting the Hatton Garden community following the raid, said: “We were all delighted with the wonderful news the Police released regarding the arrests and recovery of a substantial amount of high value articles.

“Many of us were surprised with the news, some of us thought the police would eventually make some arrests, but did not think they would recover any property.

“When we heard the news yesterday we immediately emailed Detective Superintendent Craig Turner, whom we had met in the Bourse, and congratulated him and his team on their wonderful achievement. I was one of the skeptical members from the trade, but I am glad to have been proved wrong.”
