Matthew Mykoo, 27, of Windsor Road, Willesden, teamed up with his 28-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.

Daniel had pleaded guilty to 19 counts of robbery and two motor vehicle offences.

Matthew had admitted two robberies, was found guilty of seven and acquitted of eight which had included the fashion designer Nicole Fahri.
