Mr Seed will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later today.

Six men gave already been arrested for their part in the “largest burglary in English legal history”.

Earlier this year at a confiscation ruling in January the four ringleaders – John “Kenny” Collins, Daniel Jones, Terry Perkins and Brian Reader – were ordered to pay back £27.5m or serve another seven years in jail.

Perkins, who was serving a seven year jail term in HMP Belmarsh, has since died in prison at the age of 69.

The value of the goods stolen in the Hatton Garden jewellery raid has risen to an estimated £25m.

It was originally thought the value of the items stolen over the 2015 Easter holiday was £14m.
