The Brinks Mat Robbery

Rates : 0

The Brink’s-Mat robbery at the Heathrow International Trading Estate on 26 November 1983 saw a record £26 million (today approx £78 million) worth of gold bullion, diamonds and cash stolen from a warehouse. The bullion was the property of Johnson Matthey Bankers Ltd, which collapsed the following year after making large loans to fraudsters and insolvent firms. Many of the robbery gang were convicted, but the gold has never been recovered. Insurers Lloyd’s of London paid out for the losses. Several murders have been linked to the case, plus links established to the Hatton Garden safe deposit burglary over 30 years later in April 2015
