THE BORDER OPENS BETWEEN SPAIN AND GIBRALTAR AT MIDNIGHT DURING 1985. THE PRESS INTERVIEW CARRIES ON WHILE SOMEONE TRIES TO FIND THE KEY ! TWO AMUSING AND EMABBARASING EPISODES OCCURED THAT NIGHT. IN FRONT OF THE WORLFD PRESS WHEN THE BORDER OPENING WAS ABOUT TO HAPPED, IT WAS DISCOVERED THEY COULD NOT FIND THE CORRECT KEY. THE CORRCET KEY WAS PRODUCED AFTER A FEW MINUTES. THE SECOND WAS EVEN MORE EMABRRAING FOR THE GIBRALTAR POLICE. AN INFAMOUS AND WANTED BRITISH CRIMINAL AT THE TIME WAS LIVING ON THE COAST DEL SOL. RONNI KNOGHT, WHO DROVE THROUGH THE NEWLY OPENED BORDER THAT NIGHT IN HIS ROLLS ROYCE, BOUGHT A PINT OF BEER AT THE ' ANGRY FRIAR ' BRITISH PUB IN GIBRALTAR AND THEN RETURNED UNDETECTED. HE DID ALL THIS UNDER THE NOSES OF THE POLICE AND SECUIRTY.
