Danish gang convicted of £7.1m raid

A gang of 14 men have been convicted of Denmark's biggest robbery in which 62 million kroner (£7.1 million) was taken from a cash depot in Copenhagen in 2008.

Glostrup city court found the men guilty on all charges, including robbery, arson and possession of firearms.

The men, who are Swedish, Danish and French, face up to 15 years in prison when their sentences are handed down next week.

On August 10, 2008, masked robbers wielding submachine guns crashed into the cash depot.

They set 10 trucks on fire and spread metal spikes on nearby roads to avoid pursuit. No-one was injured.

Only a small part of the stolen money was recovered.
