Hatton Garden mastermind Brian "the guv'nor" Reader has been sentenced to six years and three months in jail for his role in the £14 million jewellery raid.

The 77-year-old - the oldest member of the gang - suffered a stroke in Belmarsh Prison following what was the biggest burglary in English history.

Appearing via video link at Woolwich Crown Court, Reader, who the court was told now uses a walking frame, was sentenced to six years and three months by Judge Christopher Kinch QC.

Reader, of Dartford Road, Dartford, Kent, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary last September.
