The events depicted in this film are, astonishingly, based on a true story. During the Easter bank holiday period April 2015 a gang of middle aged and OAP veteran criminals really did break into The Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company in central London using the methods depicted in this film and stole somewhere between £14 million to £25 million worth of valuables from safety deposit boxes (the exact amount is unclear as customers with safety deposit boxes didn't necessarily want to report what their boxes contained). The initial success and surprise of the robbery however was short lived as the perpetrators were caught within a matter of weeks by police after modern crime solving methods and clumsiness by the thieves themselves resulted in a string of arrests.

Footage of a Javelin high speed train passing cliffs near has an announcement played over the top saying the train calls at Stratford, Canterbury West, Dover and Margate. For one thing the first port of call is Stratford International then regular HS1 services will call at Ebbsfleet and some at Ashford International stations afterwards. While they do indeed go to Canterbury, Dover is not served by SE High Speed, and was not at the time the film is set(2015). See more
