The Bobbies Are Closing In on Lee Murray

Some news on good old Lee Murray

A PROFESSIONAL cage fighter currently in jail in Morocco has been identified as one of the main conspirators in Britain's largest cash robbery.

An Old Bailey jury has heard it suggested the fighter probably started planning the raid, at the Securitas depot in Tonbridge in February last year, as early as July 2005.

The fighter, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is alleged to have bought custom-made surveillance equipment from a security expert and inquired about tracking devices and scanners.

He is in custody in Rabat, Morocco, awaiting extradition proceedings. Police hope to bring him back to this country to stand trial next year.
