Following the arrest of seven men today (19 May) in connection with the Hatton Garden burglary, Detective Superintendent Craig Turner, Head of the Flying Squad, has appealed for information to trace a white van seen in the area at the time of the raid.
Two CCTV images taken of the van in and around the Hatton Garden area over the Easter weekend, when the raid took place, have been released.
Det Supt Turner said: “I would like to make an appeal for information around a van that was seen in
the area of Hatton Garden over the Easter bank holiday weekend.
“It was a white Transit van, registration DU53 VNG, which was caught on CCTV near Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Ltd.
“We have had the CCTV from an early stage of the investigation but we are now releasing the registration of the van.
“Did you see anyone loading or unloading a white van in the Hatton Garden area over the Easter bank holiday?
“So far we haven’t managed to recover the van yet. Have you seen a van matching this description and registration since the burglary in Hatton Garden or do you know where it is now?
“If you have seen it or have any information that would help our inquiry please call the Flying Squad on 020 8785 8655 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.”
