Detectives in England investigating the multi-million pound Securitas depot raid have recovered “a quantity of cash” from a white Transit van linked to the robbery, it emerged tonight.
Kent Police said it was “too early” to say how much money had been recovered from the van, which was found at the Ashford International Hotel earlier today after a tip-off from a member of the public.
However, pictures emerged tonight which appeared to show two police officers in white overalls, face masks and gloves unloading two large black bags from the rear of the van.
The bags appeared to be wrapped in tape and required two officers to lift them.
If full of cash, the quantity of money recovered could be substantial.
A gang of armed robbers escaped with up to £50m (€73m) after raiding the Securitas depot in Tonbridge, Kent, in the early hours of Wednesday – Britain’s biggest robbery.
