Five men were tried on January 29,2008(two days ago)for committing the biggest cash robbery in Great Britain. A city tabloid stated that about 53 million pounds(Rs.415 crore) was looted from a depot in South-East England. On February 21st 2006, five armed robbers disguised in prosthetic make-up kidnapped the manager of the Securatas depot and his family to gunpoint to gain access to the building at Kent. However the CCTV caught them in camera while escaping with the booty.

The Great Train Robbery :
That was the name given to the audacious robbery of The Royal Mails Glasgow to London traveling post office train on August 8, 1963 at Bridego Railway Bridge, Ledburn near Mentmore in Buckinghamshire, England.
The train was stopped by tampered signals and a attacked by a 15-member gang, led by Bruce Reynolds along with Ronnie Biggs, Charlie Wilson, Jimmy Hussey, John Wheater, Brian Field, Jimmy White, Tommy Wisbey, Gordon Goody, Buster Edwards and three men only known as Nos 1, 2 and 3.
The heist netted the gang 2.6 million and it was noted for its meticulous planning with no guns being used.
However, the train driver, Jack Mills, was struck on the head with an iron bar during a struggle. Mills never recovered from the attack and didnt return to work. Although he died of Leukemia in 1970, his family maintains that the attack contributed to his poor health.
