The Fleet Street Sewer Rat is a remarkable true story about a bizarre, surreal character who in four years broke more major news stories than most reporters do in a lifetime. But Benji the Binman stole the documents that were behind the stories.
He said of one his arrests, when the police downplayed his offences:
Well that of course was the biggest scandal of all cos otherwise the whole of Fleet Street would have had to be in the dock with me, and I dont think theres enough room.
Max Clifford: Benjamin Pell is no ordinary person by any stretch of the imagination.
John McVicar: Meeting Pell for the first time is like going down to beach for a swim and being confronted with a tsunami most people just want to get out the cross and the garlic, and head for the high ground.
