The Baker Street Robbery took place in September 1971, when a small gang tunneled their way 40 feet under Lloyds Bank in Baker Street, breaking through the reinforced concrete floor with a thermal lance. They were detected by a nearby amateur radio enthusiast who alerted the police, who originally failed to detect the robbery as there were no visible signs that the vault had been broken into. Four men were jailed for the robbery in 1973, and it was rumored that material had been taken from the vault that might prove damaging to the British royal family so the media may have been requested to exercise self-censorship about reporting this.
