I'm nigh on sure that the bank was Lloyds & not Midlands. I knew a fella who broke into it way back when & all he got were a couple of big bags of coppers.
Anyway he'd set off the silent alarms & the police surrounded the place while he was stuck up on the roof so he pelted them with the coins he'd nicked.
Fighting fire with fire ;)
Local kids were scurrying about grabbing them up & created havoc.
Great footage by the way. Any more of the area?
Definitely the Midland. My account was there until it closed. Interestingly, I just found this link to an old cheque for £25 from 1957 for sale... The bank address is 106 Bermondsey Street
. £25 was probably quite a lot back then...I wonder how much it would be the equivalent to nowadays?
