Biggs’ Escape is one of the best

Not surprisingly, after the escape of John Massey from Pentonville Prison the media started looking at other high profile prison breaks, of which the most famous of all has to be Ron’s escape from Wandsworth Prison on 8 July 1965.

Massey was on the run for just two days before being re-arrested, while Ron was on the run for a total 13,068 days before giving himself up and returning to Britain.

Ron tells all the details of his remarkable escape in his autobiography Odd Man Out: The Last Straw.
