Victims not laughing at OAP heist.
Byline: RECORD REPORTER
A COMEDY film based on the Hatton Garden heist has sparked anger for making light of the raid.
King of Thieves, starring Sir Michael Caine, Paul Whitehouse and Ray Winstone, sends up the burglary, which left many victims in financial ruin.
David Joffe, of the London Diamond Bourse, said: "Unfortunately these films glorify such things.
"I wouldn't want them made in the first place - it gives robbers credence.
"The victims are very annoyed about it. Some of the stuff stolen wasn't insured and there have been serious problems getting the money back."
Six OAP thieves were jailed for the PS14million raid, in which safe deposit boxes were ransacked at a deposit in Central London.
