A man from Islington has been arrested in connection with the infamous Hatton Garden raid three years ago.

Yesterday, Met detectives who continue to investigate the burglary arrested a 57-year-old man on suspicion of “non-residential burglary”.

He was arrested after a search warrant was carried out at the unspecified address in Islington at about 7.30am.

A number of items were seized from the address and the man remains in custody at a police station.

The Hatton Garden Safe Deposit raid, in April 2015, is one of the most notorious burglaries in UK history.

It happened just outside the Islington border, to the west of Farringdon station, and valuables worth up to £29million were stolen.

So far, nine people, most elderly, have been convicted for their part in the burglary.

The raid was planned in The Castle pub in Pentonville Road, which now has a sign inside boasting of its claim to fame.
