Stolen goods from the Hatton Garden raid have been found in a cemetery in Edmonton

Earlier this year, while most of us spent our Easter weekend stuffing our faces with chocolate, a group of men decided to break with the usual traditions and pull off a multimillion pound jewellery heist instead. They drilled through the wall of a safety deposit vault in London's diamond district, Hatton Garden, and stole £20 million worth of jewellery, gems and cash. Since then, five men have denied the charges and are awaiting trial, while four other men have pleaded guilty and are waiting to be sentenced. One of them, Daniel Jones, has now come forward to show the police where he stashed his share of the goods, which it turns out were buried in a cemetery in Edmonton in north London. The police haven't released any details about which cemetery it was, but it's bound to be in some high security police evidence unit by now - so don't get any big ideas.

And an eagle flew over London with a camera strapped to its back.
