LONDON, Oct. 3 - Reggie Kray, the last survivor of the three-brother gang of ruthless enforcers with Cockney accents who ran London's underworld in the 1950's and 1960's while gaining reputations as smart-suited escorts to the show business set and Robin Hood figures in their old neighborhood, died Sunday in Norwich. He was 66.


Also the subject of The Krays, which was a not bad 80s film starring those guys who were in that awful band Spandau Ballet as the Kray brothers, and I think Reggie Kray is mentioned in a song by Morrissey (from the Smiths).
