a robbery that took place in southern England in 1963. A group of men attacked a mail train and stole £2.6 million. It is Britain's most famous robbery because little of the stolen money was ever found. Most of the robbers were caught and sent to prison, but one of them, Ronald Biggs, escaped from prison but returned there in 2001.
