About Sydney Street Siege

A group of anti-Tsarist terrorist bungled a robbery and killed 3 policemen while escaping. After a nationwide hunt they were found, in Jan 1911, at 100 Sidney Street, where they barricaded themselves in and took pot shots for 5 hour. Winston Churchill as Home Secretary came to see what was going on. The siege was finally ended when the house burnt down.
100 Sidney Street, E1
