The Old Bailey heard how a make-up artist helped create disguises for the 53m Securitas robbery. Police have released a series of images of materials from her bin.

Michelle Hogg, 32, made false noses, chins, moustaches, stubble and hairlines for the alleged robbers. Scraps of latex were found by police.

Charges against Miss Hogg in connection with the robbery were dropped after the prosecution accepted she did not know why she had been asked to provide the disguises.
