Smelling salts at the ready, ladies, because Metro reports that a police efit of Dick Turpin (created using a combination of contemporary descriptions and modern technology) is being displayed on a 'wanted' poster at York Castle. His crimes included poaching, burglary, cattle rustling, horse theft, highway robbery and murder, and he was executed at York in 1739 (he was only actually convicted for cattle rustling, which was itself punishable by hanging).
All I can say is that the life of a fugitive has clearly been quite bad for his complexion.
