Buster Edwards, a member of the gang that committed the Great Train Robbery, was in 1991 himself the victim of a theft, albeit of a more mundane nature. On 15 June, at about 3pm, British actor Dexter Fletcher (Band of Brothers/Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) ran along Mepham Street and scooped up two bunches of nasturtiums valued at £5 from Edwards’ stall. Edwards reported the theft to the police, identifying his assailant as being “that lad out of The Rachel Papers”. Fletcher was unlucky in the timing of his theft because Edwards had seen the film only days before. Fletcher was arrested and charged with theft.
