BANK OF ENGLAND SECURITY TIGHTENED FOLLOWING ROBBERY

"Bank governor Mervyn King commissioned a security review on
the day of the 22 February raid in Tonbridge, Kent.

A preliminary report by the bank's deputy governor has
recommended measures to make note storage and distribution
less vulnerable to crime.

The cash-handling industry has also taken steps to boost
security."

"Almost 20 million stolen in the raid at the depot has
since been recovered.

Four men and a woman have been charged in connection with
the raid and are due to appear at Maidstone Crown Court
on Monday."
