Bruce Reynolds who masterminded the robbery was the last member of the gang to be tracked down. Following the guilty verdict in 1968, the newspapers were quick to headline his 25 year sentence.
Reynolds had been renting a house in Torquay with his wife Frances and their six-year old son Nicholas. They had been planning to fly to Canada the following week.
[B]Parked outside the house was the family's new Mini Cooper 'S'.[/B]
