A man has been jailed for hiding thousands of pounds stolen in Britain's biggest cash robbery.

John Jeeves, 36, of Jenningtree Way, Belvedere, south-east London, stored £103,000 under the floorboards at an address in Greenwich.

Prosecutors said some of the money was linked to the £53m Securitas depot heist in Tonbridge, Kent, in 2006.

Jeeves was jailed for 15 months at the Old Bailey after admitting a charge of concealing criminal property.

He was also given a five month sentence to run consecutively for a separate offence of affray.

Criminal property

Seven men have been jailed for their roles in the raid at the depot.

On the night of the raid, 14 Securitas staff members were terrorised and tied up at gunpoint as the robbers loaded cash on to a lorry.

Police have recovered £21m and have still to find the rest.

Last month, company director Ian Bowrem, appearing at Maidstone Crown Court, admitted concealing criminal property from the raid.

The 46-year-old, from Higher Metcombe, near Ottery St Mary in Devon, will be sentenced at a later date.
