'Fascinating' Reggie Kray letters to be auctioned

A collection of letters described as being "historically important", which were written by one of the UK's most notorious gangsters, are to go under the hammer in Glasgow.

Notorious crime boss, Reggie Kray, penned the 215 exchanges to Carol Clerk, the ghost writer of his autobiography, while serving a life sentence in prison.

Victoria Irvine, a valuer at McTear's Auctioneers, told BBC Scotland the letters were "fascinating pieces of crime memorabilia".
