Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs is to set up his own Web site in a bid to counter some of the "absolute rubbish" written about him. The site - which will include photos from his personal collection, a biography and a chat room - will be run from Brazil, where Biggs has lived for the majority of the last 35 years following his escape from prison. His son Michael told The Register that he couldn't give a firm date for when the site would go live, although an "under construction" page would be published early next week. There were hopes that it would be published next month, but Michael has said it depended on his father's health. Biggs, 70, suffered a mild stroke last September. According to his son, he is doing "100 per cent better". "All we're waiting for is his speech to come back," he said. Long-time friend Christopher Pickard said the site will give Biggs the opportunity to "reply to rumours" and some of the "absolute rubbish" written about him the press. Biggs was sentenced to 30 years in jail for his part in the £2.6 million Great Train Robbery in 1965. He escaped from prison after just 15 months before living a life in self-imposed exile. ® Link The official Web site for the fugitive Great Train Robber, Ronnie Biggs
