Beatles beat the taxman

The Bank of England discovered Beatles John Lennon and George Harrison had committed financial offences - but decided not to prosecute them.

Secret documents show that the Bank was intrigued by how the stars were moving big sums of cash in and out of the UK, and concluded they had broken the law. The documents, released under freedom of information legislation, reveal it was decided not to prosecute the rock legends.
