The 'theft' of the Duke of Wellington

Not normally a topic of this blog, but this article is of interest 'The "theft" of the Duke of Wellington', The Lady. 
In 1961 a retired bus driver stole a Goya from the National Gallery. The heist gripped the public’s imagination and made legal history. His defence? Pensioners were being ripped off .
The case was defended by Jeremy Hutchinson, who was then 100 years old.
