Great Train Robber Bruce Reynolds dies aged 81.

The mastermind behind the £2.6m Great Train Robbery in 1963 Bruce Reynolds has died aged 81.

The gang of 15 men brought the Glasgow-to-London overnight mail train to a stop by changing a signal to red on 8 August 1963 taking over 120 money bags equivalent to £40m in today's money.

Reynolds' son Nick said his father had died in his sleep in the early hours of Thursday.

"He hadn't been well for a few days and I was looking after him," he said.

"I really can't talk at the moment. I can confirm that he has passed away and he died in his sleep."
