A 28-year-old man has been jailed for his part in a series of raids that netted millions of pounds worth of watches and jewellery.

Kevin Cook, 28, of Wiston Road, Hackney, east London, was sentenced to seven years in prison at Kingston Crown Court on Friday.

He previously pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiracy to commit robbery.
