Stunning Photos Of Britain's Hatton Garden Robbery Released

London's metropolitan police released step by step images today showing how the brazen robbers pulled off the largest jewel heist in history.

A gang of up to seven thieves may have been involved and are alleged to have made off with £200 million ($300 million) in gold, jewels, and diamonds.

Once the group got in, its members disabled a lift, climbed down the shaft, drilled through the wall, and accessed 72 safe-deposit boxes.

In a series of images the police detail how the gang cased the premise and drilled through a 2 foot concrete wall before ripping the steel vault bars to get inside the safe. From there they ransacked the safety deposit boxes before making their escape - only to return the next morning for a bit more loot.

Here are the images they released today:
