Folville Gang: Medieval brothers 'terrorised' Leicestershire

An ancient stone cross on a little-used path in Leicestershire marks the spot where a murder took place more than 600 years ago.

The killing was one of many crimes committed by the Folville Gang - one of the first organised criminal gangs in England.

The aristocratic Folville brothers terrorised the area around Leicestershire and Lincolnshire in the 14th Century by killing rivals and kidnapping a judge.
