A COPYCAT criminal gang have made away with millions in jewellery, in what appears to be a heist inspired by Hollywood.

A safe deposit vault in London’s jewellery quarter was raided last month in a raid that has an uncanny resemblance to the plot of film Sexy Beast.

The gang are thought to have posed as workmen and gained access to the vault through the elevator shaft.

Largely shot in southern Spain Sexy Beast, featuring Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley, depicts a London gang targeting a safe deposit centre.

The true value of the heist may never be known as is often the case with safe deposit loots.
