A financial messenger was robbed in a quiet City of London side street at knifepoint of £292m worth of bonds he was delivering. Police believe the mugging was carried out by Patrick Thomas, a small-time crook from south London who was found shot dead before being charged. The police later recovered all but two of the bonds after a tip-off. One man received a six-and-a-half-year sentence for laundering the stolen bonds.
