  1. A security guard delivering wages to Stanley Tools Ltd on Rutland road, was clubbed to the ground by two men and robbed of £71,000 in cash. The robbery occurred at 8.35am. on October 31st, 1979, as a security van made a weekly delivery. The driver took a cash box from the van while the guard remained inside. As he entered the building he was attacked from behind. His goggles were smashed, ammonia was sprayed in his eyes, and his shoulder broken with an iron bar. His two assailants escaped in a waiting Triumph 1300. They were pursued by a Stanley employee, who gave chase in a works van but was quickly left behind. The escape car, stolen earlier in Leicester was found in Brunswick road. Despite descriptions being issued and a police reconstruction of the incident, neither cash nor robbers were ever seen again.
  2. Yea I know he was there from 1975 onwards if not before that. I wonder what Oliver is doing these days?
  3. Very sad news, rest in peace.
  4. Olivia Reivers was the person who was in Sutcliffes car in January 1981 when he was arrested. The link below is a true account, if you go to the bottom of the page and continue you will come to Sutcliffes actual statments a few pages on. http://www.execulink.com/~kbrannen/arrest.htm
  5. Is it this one? Fleetwood Mac also did this song.
  6. Hi Pud, this might help just click the link.
  7. I went to this place around 1977/8, tried to get my mum to buy a new fantic Caballero moped for me. I remember an Italian fella possibly tooth missing at the front? He was a bit to up front with the ladies so my mum refused to go back. Sorry if I spoil the thread but I never got my moped:mad::cry:
  8. From what I recall of this robbery it was an austin car that belonged to the bank. A four man team attacked the car with coshes and jemmies, the car was delivering wages to various firms in Sheffield.
  9. Sorry mate not sure about his past before the late 1980s. He did seem to be quite talented and could easily earn £150 a day busking. Hopefully in the next couple of days I will contact someone who could possibly clarify his propper name. Please feel free to PM me when allowed.
  10. Yes, he would play local in town but would sometimes go to Rotherham, Barnsley etc. Places he could just jump on a bus. Lenny was a great bloke sadly no longer with us. I would visit him at home the odd time, he died at his home in Pitsmoor but again this might not be the same person.
  11. Possibly no connection but here goes. Lenny springs to mind, I knew him quite well as a local busker in the 1980s-90s played the guitar and wore a cowboy type hat. I might be able to help a little more if this is of intrest to you.
  12. Thats what I mean tedrodgers regarding my worry of damp. The shorter the gap the more likely i would worry about damp, any maintainance needed would be impossible. I agree with you this situation is crazy.
  13. Even if you buy an house similar the neighbour could extend any time as people do. Im no expert but some extensions i have seen like this would worry me in case of damp etc, perhaps im wrong?
