Ransomed Chairman of the Council
This photo was amongst the many Echo Archive pictures. It is of Councillor Brian Beasley and he is holding a ransom note from A. Capone. I wonder how much the Chairman was worth? Do you know who the Chairman was at this time?
I cannot read all of the note and if anyone can fill in the details please do. It reads:
We have kidnapped the Chairman of the Canvey Council and we ? ? for an indefinite period of time, unless the Councillors ? ? ???? Appeal Fund in the name of the Young Conservatives.
We are not joking, we will keep him
