Eight men accused of conspiring to carry out the Hatton Garden jewellery raid have been remanded in custody, as it was revealed that the losses run in "excess of £10m".

It is alleged that the men plotted together to enter Hatton Garden Safety Deposit as trespassers, with intent to steal therein.

Prosecutor Edmund Hall said that while the total value of the goods stolen was not yet known, it ran "in excess of £10m" and 73 safety deposit boxes had been looted.

Terry Perkins (67), Daniel Jones (58) and Hugh Doyle (48), all of Enfield, north London; William Lincoln (59) of Bethnal Green, east London; and John Collins (74) of Islington, north London, all appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court. Also in court were Brian Reader (76) and Paul Reader (50), both of Dartford, Kent, and Carl Wood (58) of Hertfordshire, who face the same charge of conspiracy to burgle between April 1 and May 19, this year.
