Turpin

Flintlock

At 73, William Turpin remains fully active in his chosen profession, despite suffering horrific injuries on a daily basis.

The great, great grandson of legendary highwayman Dick Turpin, William has followed in the family tradition and continues to ply his trade up and down the motorways of Great Britain.

"Of course, things were much easier in the days of my illustrious ancestor," says William from his hospital bed, where he is recovering from a broken collar bone, severe lacerations of the face and a cracked pelvis. "All he had to do was step out into the road, cry out 'stand and deliver' then just collect the loot. Now me, I step out into the road and get as far as 'sta...' and then whack! Next thing I know, I'm lying in a ditch with my legs bent round the wrong way and the word 'Scania' imprinted across my forehead."
