Banknote forgery business set up here.
Location: Flat 3, 21 Bolton Road, Chiswick
Description: This is the tiny flat where in 2009 the Serious Organised Crime Agency and police found a banknote printing operation. The 83 year old flat owner, who's mobility scooter was found outside, had been printing 8million of banknotes including the foil strips. With the help of 3 other gang members the operation pumped out high quality 20 and 50euro notes.
Neighbours regularly complained of noises, probably due to the machinery involved.
The four were given prison sentences, with flat owner Dennis Hancox given a suspended sentence.
