Police were hunting Tuesday night for a gang that stole more then 20 million pounds from a bank. On Sunday night they held the bank officials families until Monday when the officials were ordered to deliver the money to them or else.
The scam was finally brought to light late Monday evening. Strangely enough this comes just as the bank had been bought from another institution for 967 million pounds.
This recent problem should not delay the sale which is said to take place in the first quarter of 2005.
