The Hatton Garden raid has \u201cruined lives\u201d and victims have lost their \u201clivelihoods\u201d, according to a loss adjuster.\u00a0\r\n\r\nRicky Marchant, from Marchant and Marchant, told the BBC that he was dealing with seven clients who had lost items during the robbery, with an estimated value of \u00a32m in total.\r\n\r\nMarchant said that it was mainly small businesses that had been hit by the robbery at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit company over the Easter weekend, last month.\r\n\r\nHe said: "We are dealing here with mainly small businesses and they are not making huge profits. These aren't extremely wealthy people, for a lot of them their livelihoods have gone.\r\n\r\n"All of us might be forgiven for thinking 'how audacious, how clever' - but what [the gang has] done is ruin the lives of many people within the Hatton Garden jewellery quarter."\r\n\r\n\u201cI have been told by individuals I have interviewed that they have had friends and colleagues who work in the quarter with them, grown men, hardened dealers - [they] don't know what to do because of course some haven't insured at all.\r\n\r\n"Their view was 'it is in a safety deposit box - the key word is safety - it should be ok' - and of course they have lost everything."\r\n\r\nHe added that the chance of uninsured victims recovering their sums is \u201cpretty remote\u201d, and their \u201conly hope\u201d would be pursuing a recovery if there was evidence of negligence.\r\n\r\nIn total, 72 safe deposit boxes were opened in the robbery and the contents of 56 boxes were taken. Police have offered a \u00a320,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the burglary.
