      Bruce Reynolds, who was the key planner behind the £2.6m Great Train Robbery in 1963, has died aged 81.
      BBC article - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21617926

      The train robbers are regarded by some as sort of folk heroes. They are not. They were a bunch of criminals out to line their pockets - and it was an ordinary working man who paid the price -
