A pensioner stabbed to death by burglars. My brother rang up, and he

:00:09.:00:23.

goes, dad is dead. You hear those words just everyday. A young father

:00:24.:00:29.

hit by a stray bullet. This innocent man suffered until he took his last

:00:30.:00:36.

breaths because somebody took a gun and shot him. And the one who got

:00:37.:00:43.

away, the hunt for Hatton Garden's redhead thief. Live for the next

:00:44.:00:46.

hour, this is Crimewatch. Good evening and welcome

:00:47.:01:09.

to Crimewatch. We're live for the next 60 minutes

:01:10.:01:10.

with crime investigations, The Flying Squad will be

:01:11.:01:13.

here with the latest on Basil and Hatton Garden but first

:01:14.:01:20.

a brief look at what else We have a fresh collection

:01:21.:01:23.

of wanted faces. The lines are open so get dialling

:01:24.:01:27.

if you know where they are. Including the moment a man

:01:28.:01:30.

was ambushed for his scooter. It was happening so quickly that I

:01:31.:01:45.

couldn't react, and the next thing I must have lost consciousness. Also

:01:46.:01:50.

tonight, we need your help to identify a murder victim, tied up in

:01:51.:01:52.

a sleeping bag in Ireland. Police are convinced he's British

:01:53.:01:54.

but who is he? David Brickwood was a 74-year-old

:01:55.:01:59.

grandfather from Abington in Northamptonshire

:02:00.:02:01.

with a large, loving family. So why in September was he murdered

:02:02.:02:03.

in his own home? Tonight we can reveal new CCTV

:02:04.:02:09.

which may hold the answers to this horrific murder,

:02:10.:02:12.

but first we hear from David's sons Every day it kicks you at some

:02:13.:02:33.

point. The fear that he must have had. What a horrible way to go.

:02:34.:02:40.

Lindsay Avenue was his little castle, and seeing forensic people,

:02:41.:02:47.

tape all round it, people laying flowers, you cannot make sense of

:02:48.:02:55.

any of it. David Brickwood had lived at the same house in Abington for 45

:02:56.:03:01.

years. He ran a scrap metal business from the back garden of his

:03:02.:03:09.

property. That was just his life. He was brought up to go out there

:03:10.:03:13.

collecting metals, and that is all he knew. He loved the simple things

:03:14.:03:21.

in life. Didn't go on holiday, didn't drink or smoke. He lived for

:03:22.:03:29.

work and that is how he was. Hard-working, funny, helpful. He was

:03:30.:03:33.

just a total gentleman to everybody. People like that, they just aren't

:03:34.:03:40.

around any more. He was very content within himself. Scrap was his hobby.

:03:41.:03:46.

He always made everyone welcome that you see around the street, that's

:03:47.:03:50.

what he was known for. Always standing there with a cup of tea in

:03:51.:03:55.

his hand, smiling and talking to everyone. He could never do enough

:03:56.:03:59.

for people. He was always helping people. Really a lovely man, I'm

:04:00.:04:08.

proud to say he was my father. Friday the 25th of September was

:04:09.:04:13.

like any other for David. At around 7:30pm, he returned home from the

:04:14.:04:17.

local shops, having gone out to buy some dinner. At quarter past eight,

:04:18.:04:30.

David's grandson, who had been staying at the house, went out for

:04:31.:04:38.

the night. After watching television for several hours, David locked up

:04:39.:04:39.

and headed to bed. David had been stabbed five times.

:04:40.:07:02.

He received injuries to his leg, hands and head. Police. Police!

:07:03.:07:26.

When police arrived, his condition had deteriorated and he suffered a

:07:27.:07:28.

heart attack. My brother rang up and he goes,

:07:29.:07:53.

dad's dead, and you know that dad's dead every day, you hear them

:07:54.:08:00.

words just every day. I had to go and tell my mum and then

:08:01.:08:13.

tell my children. It is just heartbreaking. We got a life

:08:14.:08:25.

sentence, we did, but like dad we were innocent. We were just normal

:08:26.:08:32.

people getting on with our lives. I saw my dad on the Friday, he is gone

:08:33.:08:40.

on the Saturday. My world fell apart, I was destroyed. Seeing my

:08:41.:08:44.

dad laying there, seeing the look on his face... It is just so hard to

:08:45.:08:53.

believe that someone could do this. You know, he was a

:08:54.:08:59.

non-confrontational man. Everybody is stuck from the murder of my

:09:00.:09:08.

father. Until these people get caught, we cannot rebuild our lives.

:09:09.:09:14.

We cannot move forward. All everybody wants is just justice for

:09:15.:09:16.

my dad. Well, we're joined now by DCI

:09:17.:09:19.

Mick Graham who is the lead detective on this case.

:09:20.:09:24.

Such a shocking crime, We are not entirely sure, it is an

:09:25.:09:39.

unnecessarily level of violence. We know he used to keep significant

:09:40.:09:46.

sums of money, mainly 20 and ?50 note so they should be noticeable.

:09:47.:09:50.

David has been stabbed, as you have seen from the video, five times. The

:09:51.:09:56.

attackers would have been bloodstained, so did anybody see any

:09:57.:10:00.

bloodstained clothing that night, someone acting suspiciously? And you

:10:01.:10:06.

are particularly interested in two cars. We have images of the sorts of

:10:07.:10:12.

cars because you saw them on CCTV. Yes, these are the style of cars we

:10:13.:10:17.

are looking at. We have two Ford focus cars, one is light-coloured

:10:18.:10:22.

and one is dark coloured, a different model and series. They are

:10:23.:10:27.

both travelling in convoy, they both turned around in the locality of

:10:28.:10:32.

Lindsay Avenue. I think they are involved, those vehicles travelling

:10:33.:10:37.

together. And there are also people walking past in the area at that

:10:38.:10:43.

time that you would also like to hear from? Yes, there were people

:10:44.:10:49.

arguing outside David's house at about quarter to 12. This is a male

:10:50.:10:54.

and female we believe, so we would ask them to come forward. They may

:10:55.:11:00.

have witnessed something. Similarly we have two males walking away at

:11:01.:11:04.

midnight, they may have information that could assist the inquiry. This

:11:05.:11:10.

is September last year, and there is a reward? Yes, there is a ?10,000

:11:11.:11:17.

reward for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

:11:18.:11:25.

Whoever did this is violent and dangerous.

:11:26.:11:26.

If you can help in any way, please call now on our usual

:11:27.:11:31.

Detectives are standing by for your calls.

:11:32.:11:34.

A round-up of crime news now and with less than a week

:11:35.:11:36.

until Valentine's day plenty of people will be looking

:11:37.:11:38.

But according to the latest figures, the number of people bring raped

:11:39.:11:42.

on a first date with someone they've met through dating apps or websites

:11:43.:11:45.

has increased six-fold in five years.

:11:46.:11:47.

The National Crime Agency says there were 184 rape allegations

:11:48.:11:50.

in the UK in 2014, up from 33 in 2009.

:11:51.:11:53.

The agency believes the number is under reported and is encouraging

:11:54.:11:55.

:11:56.:12:04.

Two friends who rented out their home on website Airbnb say

:12:05.:12:07.

they returned to find their rare artwork stolen and flat trashed.

:12:08.:12:13.

Jack Clarke and Dominic Jones say they arrived back at their home

:12:14.:12:16.

in Islington in London to find condoms, laughing gas canisters

:12:17.:12:18.

and cannabis joints strewn throughout, while chewing gum

:12:19.:12:23.

and food had been trodden into the carpet.

:12:24.:12:28.

Dominic's treasured print by artist Banksy, thought to be worth around

:12:29.:12:30.

eight thousand pounds, was also taken.

:12:31.:12:38.

I went upstairs and realised this Banksy print was missing. I think

:12:39.:12:45.

then obviously I was immediately completely gutted. Just thinking

:12:46.:12:52.

somebody had been in the flat treating it with such little

:12:53.:12:56.

respect, could have been doing anything in your personal space, it

:12:57.:13:07.

is just a horrible feeling. Air BnB say they have zero tolerance for

:13:08.:13:12.

this kind of thing and they are assisting police with their

:13:13.:13:13.

investigation. A man who stole a dumper truck

:13:14.:13:16.

and left a 37-mile trail of destruction during a police

:13:17.:13:20.

chase across two counties The two-hour low-speed pursuit last

:13:21.:13:22.

July started in Norwich 40-year-old Nicholas Churchill

:13:23.:13:25.

from Brandon damaged several vehicles, including police cars,

:13:26.:13:32.

causing an estimated ?28,000 The pursuit took place on major

:13:33.:13:34.

roads as well Churchill was jailed on Friday

:13:35.:13:39.

for 14 months after admitting dangerous driving whilst

:13:40.:13:42.

unfit through drugs. He said he took the truck

:13:43.:13:44.

from his employer after becoming angry about the air conditioning

:13:45.:13:46.

in his cab, saying it was too Father-of-two Marvin Couson had been

:13:47.:13:49.

enjoying a night out when he was hit by a stray bullet outside

:13:50.:14:00.

a nightclub in 2002. He survived but with serious

:14:01.:14:02.

injuries and spent the next 13 years confined to a hospital bed,

:14:03.:14:05.

unable to communicate. Now, for the first time,

:14:06.:14:12.

Crimewatch of that night in the hope that

:14:13.:14:14.

new witnesses will come forward. 13 years in pain, in suffering. Part

:14:15.:14:39.

of you thinks Marvin is still in there. Marvin is my big brother.

:14:40.:14:53.

Very much there for us as a family. He was one of those people that you

:14:54.:15:02.

gravitate towards. If Marvin meets you today, you are his friend for

:15:03.:15:09.

life. He has no enemies. Back in 2002, 26-year-old father of two

:15:10.:15:14.

Marvin Couson was enjoying life in London. In the early hours of

:15:15.:15:19.

Sunday, May the 12th, he arrived at the Lime Bar in Shoreditch with

:15:20.:15:27.

friends. The bar was packed. He knew how to have a good time. He would

:15:28.:15:31.

dance with his friends and everybody would look and see what Marvin is

:15:32.:15:38.

doing. He danced really well, if he started dancing he would get a crowd

:15:39.:15:44.

around him. Just after 3am, the partying came to a dramatic end.

:15:45.:15:53.

There was a shot fired which has caused people to panic, leave the

:15:54.:15:58.

club and spill out onto the street. Nobody was injured by the gunshot,

:15:59.:16:02.

but about 300 people were left standing outside. In particular,

:16:03.:16:12.

everyone's eyes would have gone to this red or burgundy Ford Fiesta.

:16:13.:16:18.

One of Marvin's friends stood in the road blocking the car.

:16:19.:16:54.

Bruv, no, no, no! Call an ambulance, man!

:16:55.:17:13.

The gunshot punctured his heart, ricocheted off his ribs we were

:17:14.:17:25.

told, without oxygen for approximately 20 minutes or half an

:17:26.:17:28.

hour, so that is what caused his brain injury. Initially, after the

:17:29.:17:36.

shooting the doctors believed his brain was completely dead but he

:17:37.:17:45.

surprised them, being Marvin, he started to breathe unsupported, so

:17:46.:17:48.

they changed the diagnosis saying that he was not completely

:17:49.:17:52.

brain-dead. Marvin was alive but completely unable to communicate. He

:17:53.:17:58.

would be in the bed, he would just be lying there. You believed he

:17:59.:18:05.

could hear you when you made a joke. Part of you would think, yes, Marvin

:18:06.:18:11.

is still there, but he is trapped. He can't really say anything. He is

:18:12.:18:18.

just trapped. He can hear your voice and he would respond to it, he could

:18:19.:18:23.

grin or smile, the serious expressions that he had, you would

:18:24.:18:29.

tease him and say, come on, it's not that bad. He would grin. For 13 long

:18:30.:18:37.

years Marvin was trapped in this condition, his family visited every

:18:38.:18:42.

single day. Sometimes he would be smiling but he was often in agony.

:18:43.:18:50.

When you go there, you see him, and you want to cry. You know that he's

:18:51.:18:56.

in pain. And seeing it breaks your heart. Early last year Marvin's

:18:57.:19:03.

health began to deteriorate and on a visit in August the family became

:19:04.:19:07.

alarmed by his condition. He started reading direct -- he started

:19:08.:19:19.

breathing irregularly. I saw something I had not seen before,

:19:20.:19:30.

struggling to take breaths. Marvin passed away a short time after that

:19:31.:19:38.

video was taken. I felt that people needed to see that this man, this

:19:39.:19:42.

innocent man, completely innocent, suffered in this way. Until he took

:19:43.:19:51.

his last breath, because somebody took a gun and shot him. Although it

:19:52.:20:05.

happened 13 years after he was shot, Marvin's death came as a direct

:20:06.:20:10.

result of his gunshot injuries. Police are now dealing with a murder

:20:11.:20:16.

investigation. They hope the passage of time will encourage witnesses to

:20:17.:20:22.

finally come forward. Certainly there are around 300 people and of

:20:23.:20:26.

those people some people were unwilling to give statements at the

:20:27.:20:29.

time, we understand they may have had different loyalties or have been

:20:30.:20:34.

frightened and people may not remember, but clearly if you were in

:20:35.:20:41.

the club that night, and shots were fired you would remember. It's a

:20:42.:20:46.

rare occurrence. If someone had been murdered, you would remember that

:20:47.:20:49.

and it would be crystal clear. We have had to live with... Marvin had

:20:50.:20:59.

to live as a result of the gunshot wound, for 13 years and two months

:21:00.:21:05.

and 27 days, it is registered in my head. In pain and suffering. I want

:21:06.:21:12.

them to be caught. I want to see them and let them speak to me, why?

:21:13.:21:22.

I want justice. This person did not die of natural causes, this person

:21:23.:21:27.

died as a result of your gunshot, your gunshot to his heart. His last

:21:28.:21:35.

breath as you see in the video was down to you, because you pulled the

:21:36.:21:43.

trigger. DCI Noel McHugh is here. An innocent man in the wrong place at

:21:44.:21:47.

the wrong time but it is 13 years ago, do you really think somebody

:21:48.:21:53.

could help? Yes, it was 13 years ago but people will recall that shot and

:21:54.:21:57.

300 people spilled onto the street and many would have witnessed what

:21:58.:22:01.

happened to Marvin, they would have heard rumours at the time and then

:22:02.:22:08.

with his death in August. It is the Ford Fiesta in the street that is

:22:09.:22:14.

crucial? Yes, that is central to the investigation, possibly a T Reg. Red

:22:15.:22:23.

or burgundy. Marvin's friend was struck by it and then there was an

:22:24.:22:27.

altercation and the shot came from inside the cart or nearby. We want

:22:28.:22:33.

to trace the occupants, two black men. You are now offering a

:22:34.:22:38.

substantial reward? ?40,000 for information leading to the arrest or

:22:39.:22:41.

prosecution of those responsible for his murder. I understand people may

:22:42.:22:47.

have had loyalties to other people, they may have been afraid or maybe

:22:48.:22:54.

assumption that someone else made the call. Please look at what

:22:55.:22:57.

happened to his family and make that call.

:22:58.:22:59.

It's a dreadful case but with your help it can

:23:00.:23:01.

If there's something you know which could help Marvin's family get

:23:02.:23:11.

justice, please call the detectives here in the studio on 0500 600 600.

:23:12.:23:16.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously.

:23:17.:23:19.

Police from Ireland ask for your help to identify a British

:23:20.:23:24.

busker, murdered and buried in a back garden.

:23:25.:23:34.

But we've got wanted faces first starting with 34 year

:23:35.:23:36.

He was found guilty of drug dealing in December but didn't return

:23:37.:23:42.

to court for sentencing and is now on the run.

:23:43.:23:45.

He's known to travel around the north west of England and has

:23:46.:23:48.

The 37 year old was arrested in connection with the rape

:23:49.:23:53.

He was released on bail but has failed to return for

:23:54.:23:57.

Originally from Pakistan, he has links across Greater

:23:58.:24:01.

She was found guilty of people trafficking, after bringing at least

:24:02.:24:08.

She charged each family ?12,000 and then threatened them

:24:09.:24:20.

if they wouldn't pay what she called 'taxes' of up to ?300 a week.

:24:21.:24:23.

Ul Haq went on the run last month and was sentenced in her abscence

:24:24.:24:26.

She has contacts across West Yorkshire and

:24:27.:24:30.

Finally for now is David Rotheram, although he also calls himself

:24:31.:24:34.

Detectives in Merseyside want to question him after 2

:24:35.:24:37.

security guards were robbed as they filled

:24:38.:24:39.

Rotheram was 33 last month and has LFC tattooed on his left arm.

:24:40.:24:43.

He's described as dangerous, so if you know where he is,

:24:44.:24:45.

If you know where any of tonight's other faces might be please do get

:24:46.:24:51.

in touch using the numbers on screen.

:24:52.:24:55.

We'll go through the rest of the line up a little later.

:24:56.:24:58.

A round-up of crimes caught on camera now.

:24:59.:25:00.

Starting this month with a violent robbery in London.

:25:01.:25:11.

Wednesday evening in Southwark and the man was chatting with his friend

:25:12.:25:17.

in the street. It was a nice, sunny day. Lots of daylight at that time.

:25:18.:25:23.

As they talked to men on pushbikes, a man in a dark hoodie, and two men

:25:24.:25:28.

on mopeds all went past in quick succession. They then appear to hang

:25:29.:25:33.

around at the end of the street. Just off-camera. Minutes later, as

:25:34.:25:43.

Dirk started his scooter, they struck. It was happening so quickly

:25:44.:25:52.

that I could not react. The next thing they must have thrown me onto

:25:53.:25:58.

the floor and I lost consciousness. You can see one of them kicking Dirk

:25:59.:26:02.

in the head and another stamped on him. The gang left him lying

:26:03.:26:07.

helpless on the pavement as they scarpered with his bike. It was

:26:08.:26:18.

horrific, really. You feel numb and dazed. The first few weeks, I always

:26:19.:26:27.

had in the back of my mind that this happened, and I was nervous. Do you

:26:28.:26:33.

know who these callous muggers are? Names, please.

:26:34.:26:41.

Also in tonight's CCTV... A shop in Brixton in south London in October

:26:42.:26:49.

and these men are in a hurry, one man is armed with what looks like a

:26:50.:26:55.

pellet gun. He immediately starts to fire at the terrified shopkeeper. He

:26:56.:26:58.

shoots him again in the head and face. As the victim cowers, the

:26:59.:27:04.

other robber grabs the till, dragging it out of the store.

:27:05.:27:09.

Surgeons removed several pellets from the face of the shopkeeper but

:27:10.:27:13.

he still has one behind his eye. Who are these hooded thugs? Another

:27:14.:27:24.

shop, this time in Liverpool in January. As the employee is closing

:27:25.:27:32.

up, a man follows him inside. Armed with a knife, he demands cash from

:27:33.:27:39.

the till. He takes handful after handful, and stuffs it into his

:27:40.:27:45.

pockets. But he looks straight up at the camera. He then demands the

:27:46.:27:52.

cigarettes from the display. All the time holding a knife to the

:27:53.:27:59.

petrified worker's throat. He then march is the assistant to a back

:28:00.:28:03.

room where, out of sight of the cameras, the worker is forced to

:28:04.:28:09.

open a save. Do you recognise this knife wielding robber? You know what

:28:10.:28:19.

to do. A bookies in Wolverhampton one evening last September. A man in

:28:20.:28:23.

a black coat tries to cash in his winnings but another punter in a

:28:24.:28:26.

blue polo shirt wants him to step outside. The man ignores him and the

:28:27.:28:34.

disgruntled gambler walks off. But he returns seconds later and

:28:35.:28:38.

launches a sickening punch at the unsuspecting victim. The unprovoked

:28:39.:28:45.

attack caused extensive damage to his eye which needed surgery. Stack

:28:46.:28:50.

the odds against this all loser and maim him tonight. -- sore loser. And

:28:51.:29:01.

name him. This CCTV is from house in central London but these men live

:29:02.:29:08.

here. -- don't live here. The camera picks them up in the homeowner 's

caught on camera. 47 watches including these were later found to

In 2002 a gruesome discovery was made in a garden

:29:55.:29:56.

The owner of a bungalow was carrying out building work

:29:57.:30:02.

The body had been wrapped in a sleeping bag and left

:30:03.:30:07.

A post mortem was carried out, but the remains have never

:30:08.:30:11.

14 years on and Irish detectives believe someone in the UK could hold

:30:12.:30:19.

Detective Inspector Michael Coppinger joins me now.

:30:20.:30:24.

Talk us through your initial investigation.

:30:25.:30:28.

All these years ago. Yes, in a local developer purchased the property and

:30:29.:30:36.

while he was cleaning out the rear garden with a mechanical digger you

:30:37.:30:41.

discovered a shallow grave containing skeleton remains. You

:30:42.:30:44.

think the body was there for a couple of years? How had he been

:30:45.:30:51.

killed? He was killed and concealed in a sleeping bag tied with a nylon

:30:52.:30:56.

rope and a postmortem revealed that he died of blood for straw man.

:30:57.:31:02.

There were specific items with him that you think people could help to

:31:03.:31:11.

identify? That's correct, a couple of items were found in the shallow

:31:12.:31:16.

grave including these rings and these boots were still in the

:31:17.:31:19.

sleeping bag with the remains. You think he was called Dave but what

:31:20.:31:25.

more do you know? He was known to some people who frequented the spot

:31:26.:31:28.

at the front of the area where he was found and these people believe

:31:29.:31:34.

he was called Dave and also called Dave Rawson and he may be known by

:31:35.:31:39.

another name in the UK. He had links to specific parts of England? He may

have links to Tunbridge Wells and the Cornwall area. He was busking on

:31:51.:31:54.

positive identification, for someone to ring in and tell you who he is

:31:55.:32:00.

and also find who killed him. That's correct. We would like somebody to

:32:01.:32:05.

positively identify the person known to us as Dave, we believe he is from

:32:06.:32:10.

the UK. And appeal to anyone who has information in relation to how he

:32:11.:32:17.

met this violent death. Please call the programme tonight. Michael and

:32:34.:32:37.

but I appeal to people to look at the CCTV around the Ford focus

all on the Crimewatch website. Last month the remaining members

:34:49.:34:52.

of the Hatton Garden gang were found guilty of their roles

:34:53.:34:55.

in the record-breaking heist. We'll speak to the head

:34:56.:35:03.

of the Flying Squad about the latest in their hunt for

:35:04.:35:11.

'Basil' shortly but first, the inside story of how

:35:12.:35:13.

the rest of the gang were caught. It's the biggest burglary in British

:35:14.:35:22.

history. They were career criminals. One last hurrah for them. ?14

:35:23.:35:30.

million of jewellery, gemstones and gold, stolen from the heart of the

:35:31.:35:37.

UK diamond industry. You can compare it with boxers, they retire but then

:35:38.:35:41.

they get an offer to get back in the ring one more time and this was a

:35:42.:35:46.

big prize. They would see themselves at the top end of criminality and

:35:47.:35:50.

the flying squad is at the top end of police investigation. On Tuesday

:35:51.:36:06.

the 7th of April, following the Easter weekend, security guards at

:36:07.:36:10.

the Hatton Garden safe-deposit company arrived for work. What they

:36:11.:36:15.

discovered would trigger a major investigation by the elite Flying

:36:16.:36:20.

Squad. It was a burglary in Hatton Garden, it was going to be

:36:21.:36:25.

high-value so we decided straightaway, we would get down

:36:26.:36:29.

there, assess it and then we will develop it from there. Within a few

:36:30.:36:34.

hours it became apparent it was a serious crime and a job for us. The

:36:35.:36:39.

scale of what the thieves had got away with made headlines around the

:36:40.:36:44.

world. The Flying Squad were in the spotlight. We have got to hit the

:36:45.:36:49.

ground running. A lot of these victims it was clear early on were

:36:50.:36:53.

going to be significantly financially affected by this so

:36:54.:36:58.

straightaway there is a pressure. The vast majority of people who

:36:59.:37:02.

stored property in the vaults were traders in London's jewellery

:37:03.:37:09.

Quarter with much of their wealth tied up in goods. I have been

:37:10.:37:17.

through the door every single day for 45 years. It was quite a big

:37:18.:37:21.

part of my pension which was sitting in there which was now gone. The

:37:22.:37:29.

Hatton Garden investigation was a classic case of cops and robbers.

:37:30.:37:34.

Within the first day we had already brought together a team of officers

:37:35.:37:41.

to trawl CCTV in the area. They painstakingly built up a picture of

:37:42.:37:43.

how the heist happened. The gang were caught on CCTV

:37:44.:37:56.

arriving at around 7pm in this white van. Then, at 9:22pm, a mysterious

:37:57.:38:06.

red haired man gained access to the building. To this day, it is not

:38:07.:38:12.

known exactly how he did it. Once inside, he opened the fire escape,

:38:13.:38:18.

letting the others with their builders' outfits and wheelie bins

:38:19.:38:29.

into the building. The gang then disabled the list, allowing them to

:38:30.:38:33.

access the shaft with a clear drop straight down into the basement. It

:38:34.:38:39.

is thought the two fittest of the gang then scrambled down.

:38:40.:38:50.

They got through other security measures to let the rest of the gang

:38:51.:39:00.

in. And soon, all that was between them and the loot was the vault door

:39:01.:39:08.

and a concrete wall, half a metre thick and reinforced with steel. To

:39:09.:39:14.

access the diamonds, they used a diamond, a specialist diamond tipped

:39:15.:39:18.

high-powered coring drill designed to penetrate concrete and stone.

:39:19.:39:22.

They made a hole 25 centimetres by 45

:39:23.:39:38.

centimetres in the wall, just big enough for a small person to squeeze

:39:39.:39:42.

through but they faced yet another obstacle. The back of the

:39:43.:39:46.

safe-deposit boxes were bolted to the ceiling and floor and were

:39:47.:39:56.

blocking the hole and their way in. The hydraulic ram they have bought

:39:57.:40:01.

to shift them broke. After almost 11 hours they gave up and left at

:40:02.:40:07.

around 8am, empty-handed. To walk away from that prize when you are so

:40:08.:40:13.

close, very difficult. Very difficult indeed. But by the same

:40:14.:40:18.

token, the longer they are in the vault, on the premises, then the

:40:19.:40:22.

chances of getting caught is raised considerably. But the gang broke one

:40:23.:40:30.

of the basic rules of the criminal world, by returning the following

:40:31.:40:39.

night to the scene of the crime. Using a new hydraulic ram, they were

:40:40.:40:43.

able to dislodge the metal cabinets blocking the hole. They were finally

:40:44.:41:01.

in. The hole would have been a tight squeeze. It is thought only the two

:41:02.:41:06.

who had scrambled down the lift shaft, including the red haired man,

:41:07.:41:10.

actually entered the vault. Once inside they forced open and 73

:41:11.:41:18.

safety deposit boxes, filling bags and even wheelie bins with jewels,

:41:19.:41:24.

gold, precious stones and cash. They loaded up their loot and hold it up

:41:25.:41:27.

the stairs, leaving via the fire escape. This is the moment they made

:41:28.:41:38.

their getaway with the incredible ?14 million haul. The Flying Squad

:41:39.:41:45.

had the crooks in action but who were they? Their big break in

:41:46.:41:50.

identifying them would come as a result of the thieves' critical

:41:51.:41:55.

decision to return to the crime scene that second time. That gives

:41:56.:42:03.

us a breakthrough because it allows the CCTV officers to identify on the

:42:04.:42:09.

second night they arrived in a Mercedes earlier. As well as the

:42:10.:42:14.

van, the gang also used this Mercedes, detectives were able to

:42:15.:42:18.

trace it to 74-year-old John Kenny Collins. John Collins has been

:42:19.:42:27.

convicted of robbery on two occasions. Second occasion it was

:42:28.:42:32.

armed robbery on a jewellers. He recced Hatton Garden to check out

:42:33.:42:36.

the premises, who was also the getaway driver. Because John Collins

:42:37.:42:48.

was using his own vehicle, his E200, very distinctive and very few of

:42:49.:42:53.

them on the road with a black roof and black wheels, so even the grainy

:42:54.:42:58.

CCTV that probably normally wouldn't be of a high evidential value

:42:59.:43:03.

identified it and we were able to track that car. You have just got to

:43:04.:43:07.

wait until you have got something that is concrete and you know is a

:43:08.:43:13.

good starting point, which is what is the Mercedes and Collins was, and

:43:14.:43:17.

then you commit your resources down that line. The Flying Squad but

:43:18.:43:22.

Collins under surveillance, he quickly led them to other members of

:43:23.:43:26.

the gang. Covert officers captured him meeting with 76-year-old Brian

:43:27.:43:34.

Reader. He has been described as the organiser, he would see himself as

:43:35.:43:38.

top of the tree in this group. Reader was planning the heist as

:43:39.:43:43.

early as 2012 but didn't return to the vault on that second night.

:43:44.:43:47.

Detectives were watching as they met in cafes and pubs. The group are

:43:48.:43:58.

coming together. It was in our patience game on our part and that

:43:59.:44:04.

paid off when John Collins, Brian Reader, and Terrence Perkins met.

:44:05.:44:11.

67-year-old Terrence Perkins was responsible for the drilling. He has

:44:12.:44:15.

also got form and served 22 years in prison. Perkins and Collins were

:44:16.:44:21.

telling Reader how they got in when they got back, how they were

:44:22.:44:25.

successful in the end. Detectives soon pieced together who the other

:44:26.:44:30.

gang members were. Daniel Jones is again an organised criminal, he is

:44:31.:44:34.

ten years younger. Here's the fitter and that's what he brings to the

:44:35.:44:40.

group. Carl Wood was also part of planning the heist and bear on the

:44:41.:44:43.

first night, but he pulled out on the second day when he is thought to

:44:44.:44:48.

have bottled it. And then there is the red haired man the gang referred

:44:49.:44:57.

to as Basil. A mysterious character, his true identity is still unknown.

:44:58.:45:02.

As detectives identified the gang members, they also plan electronic

:45:03.:45:16.

listening bugs on two of their cars, including Collins' Mercedes. It is a

:45:17.:45:22.

tactic that is used in serious crime investigations and it was very

:45:23.:45:25.

productive on this occasion. We know they were quite excited about the

:45:26.:45:29.

fact they got away with such a large-scale offence and it was

:45:30.:45:32.

unlikely the police would have any idea of who to look for, and they

:45:33.:45:38.

were quite comfortable in the fact they were away scot-free. The men

:45:39.:45:43.

couldn't help boasting, totally unaware the police were listening to

:45:44.:45:47.

every word. The audio recordings of the conversation told us exactly how

:45:48.:45:53.

they have done it, who they had done it with, how they were going to sort

:45:54.:45:58.

out the property, so it was a gold mine of evidence. Six weeks after

:45:59.:46:04.

the heist, members of the gang met in it pub car park in north London

:46:05.:46:09.

to move some of the loot. It would be one thing to arrest the group

:46:10.:46:12.

together but what we wanted was property. This was the moment that

:46:13.:46:19.

three bags containing diamonds, watches and necklaces were shifted

:46:20.:46:25.

from a taxi into Collins' Mercedes. The three banks that have been

:46:26.:46:31.

exchanged behind the pub contained an estimated ?4 million worth of

:46:32.:46:41.

diamonds and gold. With the exchange done, Collins and Jones drove to a

:46:42.:46:45.

nearby property with the Flying Squad on their tail. We had weeks of

:46:46.:46:50.

surveillance showing the principals meeting up. We have the audio

:46:51.:46:54.

recording saying what they had done and how they were going to do it,

:46:55.:46:58.

and eventually we had some property coming out of the woodwork so at

:46:59.:47:03.

that point we have got sufficient there. That was why we made the

:47:04.:47:09.

decision at that point ago in. The police made their move. In

:47:10.:47:14.

coordinated raids with more than 200 officers, they hit 12 addresses in

:47:15.:47:22.

London and Kent. They were surprised, obviously very

:47:23.:47:25.

disappointed. They would still have been no doubt actively in their

:47:26.:47:29.

minds trying to work out how they were going to minimise their

:47:30.:47:33.

criminal responsibility. It is not until they were interviewed and

:47:34.:47:36.

walked through the evidence we had against them that they realised how

:47:37.:47:41.

comprehensive the investigation had been against them and the amount of

:47:42.:47:45.

trouble they were in at that point in time. But they weren't saying

:47:46.:47:54.

much in police interviews. Were you a driller? No comment. Were you the

:47:55.:48:01.

person that deactivated the lift shaft? No comment. The alarm

:48:02.:48:08.

systems? No comment. Was it you that messed up? No comment. It was your

:48:09.:48:19.

role to get through the hole, wasn't it? No comment. Jones and the three

:48:20.:48:30.

other ringleaders - Reader, Collins and Perkins - saw the writing on the

:48:31.:48:39.

wall and confessed. To have spent three years in the planning for this

:48:40.:48:42.

offence to plead before going to trial basically shows and it is

:48:43.:48:45.

rewarding enough to say that we have done the right job and we are

:48:46.:48:48.

starting to do the right thing for the victims. From his cell at

:48:49.:48:54.

Belmarsh prison, Danny Jones offered to give up his stash of loot

:48:55.:48:58.

claiming he wanted to go straight. He said he had hated it at Edmonton

:48:59.:49:04.

Cemetery in north London. Police searched a grave, digging for around

:49:05.:49:09.

two hours, uncovering jewellery and precious stones. A week later they

:49:10.:49:14.

returned, this time taking Jones from his cell. He led them to a

:49:15.:49:20.

different grave. He was unaware police had already discovered the

:49:21.:49:33.

first large hall haul. The Flying Squad had recovered some of the

:49:34.:49:37.

stolen property and they had their four ringleaders. Another three men

:49:38.:49:41.

had also been charged, they pleaded not guilty and went on trial. Last

:49:42.:49:46.

month, the jury delivered its verdict. Kyle Ward and William

:49:47.:49:52.

Lincoln were both convicted for their roles in the burglary and for

:49:53.:50:01.

dealing with the haul. Another man, Hugh Doyle, was found guilty of

:50:02.:50:08.

helping the gang distribute the loot. The guilty men are now serving

:50:09.:50:13.

time, all except the mysterious red haired man, Basil, or whatever his

:50:14.:50:20.

real name is. He seems to have got away with it for now, he is still

:50:21.:50:26.

out there somewhere, along with ?10 million of missing loot.

:50:27.:50:31.

Well, it's an incredible story but it's not quite over yet.

:50:32.:50:36.

The Head of the Flying Squad, Detective Superintendent Craig

:50:37.:50:39.

Turner, is here with the latest on the illusive 'Basil'.

:50:40.:50:46.

He is an intriguing character, he seems to have got them in in the

:50:47.:50:51.

first place. You must be closing in on him by now? I am here to offer

:50:52.:51:04.

?20,000 as a reward for information that can lead to the arrest and

:51:05.:51:08.

conviction of Basil. We think he is wearing a wig and we are not sure if

:51:09.:51:14.

his name is Basil. The group referred to him as that but we don't

:51:15.:51:19.

think that is his true name. He was very elusive to CCTV so he could be

:51:20.:51:24.

local to the area. We are appealing to members of public who may have

:51:25.:51:30.

anything suspicious. He went to real pains to disguise himself, didn't

:51:31.:51:36.

he? Yes, he is carrying the bag on his shoulders and he would have

:51:37.:51:40.

known where the CCTV was and would have known the area. They took ?14

:51:41.:51:45.

million worth of property, you have covered about 4 million but 10

:51:46.:51:48.

million is still missing and these are some of the items you are

:51:49.:51:55.

interested in finding. We have restored ?3.7 million worth of

:51:56.:51:57.

jewellery back to victims and we will take our time to make sure they

:51:58.:52:02.

get back to the rightful owners. I would appeal to members of the

:52:03.:52:07.

public and people involved in the jewellery industry. If they are ever

:52:08.:52:12.

offered items of jewellery in suspicious circumstances to contact

:52:13.:52:19.

the incident room. If you think you can help the Flying Squad get their

:52:20.:52:22.

man, get in touch using the numbers on screen.

:52:23.:52:27.

Also, if you've been a victim of any crime you may want to speak

:52:28.:52:30.

Time now to update you on some previous cases and thanks to you,

:52:31.:52:37.

we have some really fantastic results this month.

:52:38.:52:40.

Starting with a horrific rape we featured in October's programme

:52:41.:52:43.

when a 21-year-old woman was attacked in the Toxteth

:52:44.:52:45.

Following the appealed this man was jailed for ten years with five years

:52:46.:53:08.

on licence. That was an incredible experience for the whole team. In

:53:09.:53:11.

the reconstruction the victim wanted to make sure that he did not do that

:53:12.:53:19.

again, and we were able to tell the victim that we found the offender

:53:20.:53:22.

and we could get him off the streets.

:53:23.:53:23.

In March we asked for your help in finding

:53:24.:53:25.

Detectives wanted to question him after an 89 year old man

:53:26.:53:29.

was attacked and robbed on his own driveway.

:53:30.:53:37.

At the time we couldn't show the victim - Mr Butlin's injuries

:53:38.:53:40.

for legal reasons, but we can now reveal this...

:53:41.:53:43.

A shocking image of an elderly man who spent several days in intensive

:53:44.:53:51.

Live with the latest crime investigations, news and appeals.

Following last month's convictions in the record-breaking Hatton Garden heist, the head of the Flying Squad appears live in the Crimewatch studio to reveal new information and images of the one who got away. The mysterious 'Basil' is the only member of the gang responsible for the £14m burglary still on the run, but detectives hope Crimewatch viewers will provide the key to revealing his true identity.

Father of two Marvin Couson had been enjoying a night out with friends when he was hit by a stray bullet outside an east London nightclub in 2002. He survived with serious injuries and spent the next 13 years confined to a hospital bed, unable to communicate. Last August, Marvin lost his battle against those injuries and passed away with his family by his bedside. As his death came as a direct result of the shooting, the Met Police have launched a full murder investigation. Crimewatch reconstructs the tragic events of the night Marvin was shot in the hope new witnesses will come forward.
