385 - The World Cup Trophy Heist

The Jules Rimet Trophy, awarded to the winner of the football World Cup, was stolen prior to the 1966 FIFA World Cup in England... what led to this was a fair bit of incompetence which didn't end with the theft! Joined by James Shakeshaft (Loremen Podcast) we hear this wild tale, enjoy!
