LONDON (Reuters) - British police were hunting for a gang on Wednesday who raided safety deposit boxes in London's major jewelery business district, making off with cash and gems in what local media said could be the country's biggest-ever heist.
The Metropolitan Police said the thieves used heavy cutting equipment to get into the vault at the officially unnamed deposit business in Hatton Garden, home to almost 300 diamond, gold and gem dealers and more than 50 shops, where they broke into the safety boxes.
