‘Mad’ Frankie Fraser, an enforcer for the Richardsons in the 1960’s — arch rivals of the Krays — passed away yesterday. We actually shot him (not in the gangland way) a few years ago for a series of his books. Memories are that he was shorter than expected, but very friendly and super polite. And having survived being shot in the head outside Turnmills in 1991 (and not discussing the shooting with the police) quite clearly hard as nails. RIP.
