Not just brothers but twins, the infamous gangsters Ronnie and Reggie wreaked havoc on London committing a series of violent murders and assaults. Even as children they were tearaways: Ronnie nearly died from a head injury sustained during a fight with his brother when they were only 11.
Ronnie, born 10 minutes before his brother, ended up serving 28 years in prison before dying of a heart attack. Reggie was released after 32 years and died of cancer shortly after. Their lives were immortalised in the 1990 film The Krays which starred the brothers Gary and Martin Kemp from Spandau as the deadly pair.
