Steven Coughlan, 25, of Gypsies Residential Site, in Eleanor Street, Bow, east London, Robert Smith, 24, of Rosedale Stables, Swanley, Kent, and a 29-year-old man from London, who cannot be named for legal reasons admitted conspiracy to burgle.
A fifth man has now been charged but has denied the offence. Thomas Kiely, 21, of Giraud Street, Tower Hamlets, London, denies conspiracy to commit burglary. The case has been set for trial on 20 May, at Cambridge Crown Court.
