Better Late Than Never

From today’s BBC website news pages:

Police e-fit specialists have drawn up the first "realistic" picture of infamous highway man Dick Turpin, 270 years after he was sent to the gallows.

With no surviving drawings or paintings of Turpin, police produced the image using the descriptions issued by the London Gazette newspaper in 1735 and 1737 after the government offered a reward for his capture.

I know the British police are a bit slow of the mark, but this one takes the biscuit!
