The first of three films based on the Hatton Garden raid of £14 million worth of jewels has started shooting in the capital.

Downton Abbey star Matthew Goode stars in The Hatton Garden Job alongside Joely Richardson and EastEnders actor Larry Lamb, as the elderly criminal mastermind Brian Reader. The gang ringleaders of veteran British criminals are portrayed by Stephen Moyer, Phil Daniels, David Calder and Clive Russell. The race is on to be the first film to dramatise the infamous heist that took place in April 2015. While two other films are in development, The Hatton Garden Job is set to make it to the big screen by the end of this year.
