Go To



No, wait, that's the ''other'' Vault Of Death. This one's about the vault of the Bank of England, which has been fitted with a fancy new unbreakable electronic lock and two-foot-thick steel door. The vault also includes a depressurising system, since documents last longer in a vacuum. Unfortunately, someone is trapped inside the vault, and the only key is miles away. The surrounding terrain is too crowded for the Mole, forcing International Rescue to go in through the old Underground rail network. Lady Penelope and Parker race cross-country to pick up the chairman and his key to open the main door, but, on arrival at Threadneedle Street, the chairman realises he's left the key at home.
