A third man has appeared in court charged with taking part in a £40m robbery at a London jewellery store.

Jamal Mogg, 42, from Westby Road in Bournemouth, was charged with conspiracy to rob Graff jewellers in New Bond Street on 6 August.

He was remanded in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

Craig Calderwood, 26, of no fixed address, and Solomun Beyene, 24, from St John's Wood, north London, have been charged with the same offence.

They appeared before the same court on Friday.

All three men are due to appear at Kingston Crown Court on 1 September.

Forty-three items, including rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and watches, were stolen in what was the biggest ever jewellery raid in the UK.

A fourth man, aged 50, has been arrested in connection with the investigation and released on police bail.
