In news that might put some life back into the lost art of grave robbing, loot from the £20 million Hatton Garden jewellery heist has been found in Edmonton cemetery in North London.  

Danny Jones, 58, who has already admitted his role in the April robbery which has gone down in British history, led police to the spot where he buried his takings.

But not before he kicked up a fuss and sending a handwritten letter to Sky News’ crime correspondent Martin Brunt.

In it he wrote of his irritation at not being allowed out of prison to show the police where the jewellery was hidden:

What a load of bull. The police can’t want it back, as I’m the only person in the world to know where it is, deep down. I want to do the right thing and give it back.

 

If I don’t get the chance to go out under armed escort, I hope some poor sod who’s having it hard out there with his or her family find the lot and have a nice life, as you never know, Martin, people do find things, don’t they?

It seems like the authorities eventually came round and let him lead them to the spoils. Everyone in Edmonton must be kicking themselves.
