Scales of justiceA SECOND-HAND car dealer charged over the Hatton Garden jewellery heist has appeared in court via video link.

Brian Reader, 76, of Dartford Road, Dartford, Kent, who runs the dealership Pentire Cars & Commercials, and his son Paul, 50, also of Dartford Road, Dartford, Kent, are among nine men accused of conspiracy to burgle the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company in London.

Items worth more than £10m were taken during the Easter weekend raid.

All nine are also accused of conspiracy to conceal, disguise, convert or transfer criminal property. They were charged last month and remanded in custody after appearing before Westminster magistrates.

The men appeared at Southwark Crown Court yesterday via a link from Belmarsh Prison and are due in court again on Friday 4th September for a plea hearing.
