Remember that episode of Only Fools And Horses where Del and Rodney pinch a "statellite dish" from Gatwick and park it on their balcony? A real-life security manager at Heathrow airport has been sacked having apparently taken inspiration from the Trotters. Roberta Gordon is alleged to have half-inched items from the lost property collection at Terminal 5. She is accused of selling the goods on eBay or handing them out as gifts for friends. Seems that her lack of business acumen would've made her perfect for Trotters Independent Traders — she apparently sold a £1,000 watch for just 95 quid.
