Today marks the passing of Ronnie Biggs, the Great British train robber, who was part of the gang which escaped with £2.6million from the Glasgow to London mail train on 8 August 1963.

The 84-year-old died in a north London care home in the early hours of Wednesday morning, bringing an end to a fascinating life of one of the country's most famous criminals.

Biggs spent more than 35 years on the run after escaping from Wandsworth prison in 1965, evading the British justice system having been previously sentenced to 30 years behind bars.

He spent time in France and Brazil before returning to the United Kingdom in 2001 seeking medical help, but was sent back to prison. Eight years later, Biggs was released on compassionate grounds after contracting pneumonia.
