Detectives claim to have foiled the world's biggest robbery, when they stopped a 350 million pound diamond theft at the Millennium Dome. Armed police arrested six men who were trying to snatch the jewels on show at a special exhibition. The gang used a mechanical digger to break into the building and a speedboat to try and make their getaway. Detectives say they'd known about the planned robbery for months.
