TWO junkie brothers who carried out a series of strangulation robberies on lone women have been ordered to pay back almost £562,000 of their unrecovered loot.

Matthew Mykoo, 27, of Windsor Road, Willesden, teamed up with his 29-year-old sibling Daniel, of Fulham Court, Fulham Road, Fulham, to rob their vulnerable victims of their handbags, jewellery and watches during a three-month spree.

The vicious pair carried out 84 robberies of which 69 were strangled after being targeted outside their homes or work places between March 2008 to June 2008 in affluent areas of north west London.

The thugs, who are both crack addicts, were ordered to pay a combined sum of £561,944 by Wood Green Crown Court.

Matthew must cough up £53,011 and Daniel £508,933.

During their trial last year, jurors heard Daniel ran up behind the women and strangled them while Matthew made off with their valuables.

Many of their victims, which include a pregnant woman and fashion designer Nicole Farhi, would lose consciousness during their ordeal.

Their loot, which included earrings, diamond rings worth thousands of pounds and Rolex watches, would then be pawned for cash.

The pair were snared after they were pulled over by the police while driving the car they stole from one of their victims, which was fitted with false plates.

Daniel was sentenced to life with a minimum tariff of 14 years after admitting 19 robberies and two motor vehicle offences with a further 65 robberies being taken into consideration.

Matthew, who admitted two robberies, was found guilty of a further seven and acquitted of eight, which had included the one involving Ms Farhi.

He was handed down an indeterminate sentence for public protection of which he must serve at least nine years before he can apply for parole.
