Following the court verdict, which saw more members of the gang responsible for Britain's biggest ever burglary convicted, this is the full, inside story of how they nearly pulled off Easter 2015's £200 million record-breaking heist.
It's one of the most audacious diamond heists in British history: despite CCTV, alarms and security guards, a six-man gang spent the Easter weekend breaking into a vault in London's Hatton Garden, escaping with the contents of safe-deposit boxes estimated to be worth millions. But how did they get away with it? Declan Lawn takes a journey into Britain's criminal underworld in search of the secrets behind the job - the creation of the team, the choice of target, the execution of the robbery and the escape plan. Speaking to victims of the crime, he asks what was inside the boxes.
The gang ransacked 73 boxes at Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd after using a drill to bore a hole into the vault wall.
Four men have pleaded guilty following an investigation into the burglary at Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd which happened on Tuesday, 7 April.

They were remanded in custody and we await a date for sentencing.

The nine men appeared today, Friday 4 September, in custody at Woolwich Crown Court.
An estimated £20m worth of jewellery, gems and cash were taken. Three holdalls stuffed with valuables were later found at a property in north London.
Six men have been convicted over the £14m Hatton Garden vault raid, believed to the largest burglary in English legal history.
Cash and jewellery including gold, diamonds and sapphires, were stolen in the elaborate raid, carried out over the Easter weekend in 2015 in London.
CCTV showed that the men would often meet a short distance from London's diamond district, making plans at The Castle pub on Pentonville Road in Islington.
With exclusive access to the elite Flying Squad and their dramatic investigation, including remarkable covert surveillance of the thieves boasting at what they'd done and the moment loot was discovered hidden in a cemetery, this is the definitive story of the Hatton Garden heist.
CCTV also shows them arriving in a white van and unloading tools, bags, metal joists and wheelie bins.
Carl Wood, 58, from Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, and William Lincoln, 60, of Bethnal Green, east London, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit burglary, and conspiracy to conceal, convert or transfer criminal property.
Hugh Doyle, 48, of Enfield, north London, was found guilty of concealing, converting or transferring criminal property.
