Because of his passion, I have had the honour and the pleasure of Freddie’s company over the last few months to capture the essence of the twins, and, if I’ve managed to do so, it’s because I have heard of their mannerisms, their characteristics, first-hand, straight up from a man who knew them before they both became killers.

While known as the archetypal ‘Godfather of Britain’, Freddie has also spent time in the USA and seven years in Spain. It was from there that he was abducted by the Spanish police and brought back to the UK to stand trial in April 1990 for participation in London’s 1983 £6,000,000 Security Express robbery.
