Description

Just after three o'clock on the morning of Thursday 8 August 1963, on a stretch of railway track in Buckinghamshire, 16 men ambushed the Glasgow-to-London mail train. Their total haul that night was #2,631,784 - worth over #26 million at today's rates. Having made a successful escape from the scene of the crime, Biggs - along with most of the other gang members - was subsequently captured; he received a 30-year jail sentence. But within 15 months he had made an escape from Wandsworth Prison, and he has been eluding the police ever since. In his autobiography, Biggs speaks openly about the robbery and his five years of being chased around the world by Scotland Yard, and also of the birth of his third son, Farley. In 1970, Biggs settled in Brazil, where he still lives thanks to his Brazilian son Michael.
