The scene of the London jewel heist

Burglars have used heavy cutting equipment to break into up to 70 safety deposit boxes in a vault in London's jewellery quarter.

The value of the haul is estimated at up to £100m and could be one of the biggest crimes ever.

The raid happened over the Easter bank holiday weekend at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit company.

The BBC's Elizabeth Ginka has been at the scene.
