I’m in Knightsbridge outside the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the epitome of London style and wealth, but I’m not here for oysters and champagne.

Instead, I’m on a mission to walk the streets and the neighbourhoods of Belgravia and Chelsea, where the Russian Oligarchs with links to the Kremlin have snapped up a staggering £1.5 billion in property.

Steven Millar is our guide - a lawyer by day, he has written a series of books about London’s Hidden Walks - and today he is taking Crime World listeners on the ultimate property porn tour.

In a special episode, we take a deep dive into the world of the Oligarchs and we look at their dirty money and what they are doing with it.
