Cartoon: The Hatton Garden Job
The plot was hatched on Friday nights in a pub in Islington and nearby café.
A mystery man with red hair, known only as Basil, let the burglars into Hatton Garden through a fire escape.
The gang, many over 60, climbed down a lift shaft to get past a security gate.
Over two nights they broke into the vault, ransacking boxes of jewels, gold and cash.
Afterwards, they loaded the loot into a getaway van and fled early on Easter Sunday.
They found inventive places to hide the £14m stash - a casserole dish and a cemetery.
But detectives had bugged Perkins' car and the secret tapes helped bring the gang down.
Police followed the gang and swooped as they took the loot to a north London safe house.
Later, Jones showed police where he'd hidden his share in Edmonton cemetery but he kept quiet about a larger stash police knew was buried nearby.
The game was up and the ringleaders admitted plotting the raid.
