Millen Hills [54, 16]
A wide, cobblestoned square with large buildings looming over it. A historical marker stands in the small garden at the square's center.
In 1965, three convicted murderers broke out of a holding cell in the nearby Retallick Walk Police Department. After making it out a side door into Hector Square, they were spotted by a police officer, who shot one of the escapees. The two surviving criminals, who had somehow managed to arm themselves, broke into Ferrington Way School, and thus began a 22-hour standoff, one of the most famous in British crime history. When police snipers finally took down the last escapee, six civilians and a police officer were dead. A small historical plaque marks the spot of the officer's death in the center of the square.
