The victim of a suspected gangland shooting at the home he rented from comedian Russell Kane has been revealed as the 'Enforcer' who took part in the largest cash heist in British history.

Paul Allen, 41, was shot in the throat when a gunman fired six bullets through a conservatory window at the £1.2million property in Woodford Green, north east London.

Allen - Fighter - Robber - £53million - Securitas

Allen, an ex-cage fighter and convicted robber, had been involved in the £53million Securitas heist in Tonbridge, Kent, in 2006, and was right-hand man to Lee Murray, the ringleader, The Sun reported.
