A ST John's Wood man has been charged over the robbery of £40million worth of jewels in Britain's biggest-ever jewellery heist.

Solomun Beyene, 24, of Lilestone Street, has been charged with conspiracy to rob and possession of a firearm.

Another man, Craig Calderwood, of no fixed address, was also charged over the armed raid during which two smartly dressed men took a cab to Graff Jewellers in Mayfair before producing handguns and grabbing 43 jewels.

Both men appear before Wimbledon Magistrates Court today.
