London's 'most persistent robbers' stole £1m cash and gems from wealthy women - including designer Nicole Farhi

The serial mugger who targeted fashion designer Nicole Farhi and a host of other wealthy women stole up to £1m in cash and jewellery.

Daniel Mykoo, 29, admitted 84 robberies of lone women in the plush London suburbs of Hampstead and Chelsea, in a bid to feed his £12,000 a month crack habit.

He was often aided by his brother Matthew - and the pair, who are originally from the French Caribbean, were today described as 'the most persistent robbers in London in recent memory'.

In an impact statement read to Wood Green Court today, Fiona Lindblom described how she was violently sick for three days after being attacked on the doorstep of her West London home.

BBC news reporter Sangita Myska was also attacked outside her home in Belsize park, and said she feared she would be 'seriously sexually assaulted'.

When one of her rings would not come off, one of the men said: 'Take the finger off then.' She said she felt her neck being twisted so hard, she thought it was broken.

'More than taking my wedding and engagement ring, they took my confidence,' Mrs Myska said. 'To this day, I can't stand men walking behind me.'

While Daniel grabbed victims from behind and held their throat - a technique he called 'the sleep hold' - Matthew would then remove earrings, necklaces and watches.

Police said Daniel could have killed any one of their victims - and had left several unconscious.

Matthew, of Brent, was convicted of seven robberies, having previously admitted two. He was cleared of two, including the one of Farhi. continues here
