One Of The Last Surviving Members Of The Gang Behind Britain's Most Notorious Heist Has Died In Spain At The Age Of 87.
Douglas 'Gordon' Goody, who was played by Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows star Paul Anderson in 2013 film The Great Train Robbery, passed away at his home in Mojacar, Spain after suffering a heart attack, according to reports.
Goody is believed to have been second in command of the 15-man gang which stole $3.9 million (£2.6 million) from a mail train in Buckinghamshire, England, in 1963.
He served 12 years in prison for his role in the heist, and moved to Spain following his release to set up his own bar.
Goody's death comes almost three years after fellow gangmember Ronnie Biggs passed away. Biggs escaped from prison in 1965 and spent more than 35 years on the run before giving himself up in 2001.
The Great Train Robbery has spawned numerous movie and TV projects, including 1967 film Robbery, 1988's Buster, starring Phil Collins as gangmember Buster Edwards, 2012 TV drama Mrs Biggs, and 2013's two-part TV movie The Great Train Robbery, which coincidentally aired in the U.K. on the day of Biggs' death.
