These are just some of the jewels that four men are accused of stealing or concealing as part of the Hatton Garden heist in April, which has been described as the "biggest burglary in English legal history".

William Lincoln, 60, Carl Wood, 58, and John Harbinson, 42, are being tried on charges of conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to convert or conceal criminal property.

A fourth man, Hugh Doyle, 48, is charged with conspiracy to conceal or convert stolen goods and with actually concealing the goods.

Four other men, described in court as the "ringleaders" of the raid, have already pleaded guilty to their involvement.

The prosecution alleges that the men found their way into the Hatton Garden Safety Deposit building, disabled the lift shaft and the alarm, and climbed down to the basement vault.

The court heard that the total value of the items stolen could be £14 million, about two-thirds or £9 million of which is still unaccounted for.
