The first features a hot and harassed looking security guard throwing a bag of money he has collected from the Peterborough Building Society into a hatch in his van.

I remember taking the second picture to illustrate the heavy price paid by bikers that I witnessed as a porter on a daily basis in A&E due largely to no helmets and no training.The orthopaedic wards were packed with bored youngsters strung up in traction for several months and a sight now rarely seen thanks to the internal fixation of fractured femurs.

You can see the full plaster cast (now light fibre glass) poking out of his jeans on his right leg. If you know who he was please let me know as I would like to take another picture of him facing the camera for my forthcoming reunion book.
