One of the ringleaders of the Hatton Garden jewellery raid is in intensive care after falling ill in custody.

Brian Reader is being treated for “a number of issues” at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in south-east London, according to his solicitor Hesham Puri.

Mr Puri said it was “unlikely” his client would be able to attend the sentencing hearing, listed for next month, for his role in the £14 million raid.

It is understood Reader, 76, had a number of outstanding health issues when he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary last September.
