'Great Train Robber' Ronnie Biggs dies aged 84

London, December 19 : Infamous fugitive Ronnie Biggs died yesterday, aged 84.


The English thief, known for his role in the 'Great Train Robbery' of 1963, was rushed from his north London nursing home to Barnet hospital as he suffered internal bleeding, but died a few hours later, the Mirror reported.

Author Chris Pickard, who helped in writing Biggs' autobiography 'Odd Man Out - The Last Straw', said that he should be remembered as 'one of the great characters of the last 50 years'.

Biggs, who was a part of the gang that staged a heist on a night mail train almost 50 years ago and made off with a haul of $4.2 million, had expressed his last wish that half his ashes be scattered in England and half in Rio.
