Variously a boxer, nightclub owner, florist and criminal. Edwards became famous as one of the 1963 Great Train Robbery gang. He fled to Mexico but returned to Britain in 1966 when his £150,000 share ran out. After a 9-year stint in jail, he set up a flower stall in Waterloo where he was himself robbed by Dexter Fletcher, the then boyfriend of Absolutely Fabulous’ Julia Sawalha, in 1991. He was found dead hanging from a steel girder in a lock-up garage in 1994 whilst under investigation as part of an inquiry into a large-scale fraud. Phil Collins played him in the 1988 film of his life, Buster.
