1976: London's Criminal Underworld Part-Funds Brent Cross Shopping Centre in Money-Laundering Scam (but it's water under the bridge now)

Link to Hammerson web site

"Hammerson and Standard Life Investments UK Shopping Centre Trust, joint owners of Brent Cross Shopping Centre, are today marking the centre reaching its 40th birthday, a significant milestone for Europe's first enclosed shopping centre. [Apart from Elephant & Castle. And Birmingham's Bull Ring Centre. And ...]

"The launch of Brent Cross on 2nd March 1976, which had been 19 years in the making, revolutionised the face of London retail, which had previously been dominated by the West End. The first American style shopping mall in the UK, Brent Cross quickly became the blueprint for shopping centres across Europe.

"All three of the centre’s department stores, Fenwick, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer have remained in the centre, alongside a number of other original brands, including Boots, W H Smith, Mothercare, Miss Selfridge and Russell & Bromley, all of which also still continue to trade very successfully 40 years on."
