Coronation Street Wiki

Aloysius "Thumbs" Reilly was a bearded, suited man used as a heavy by Dave Smith to teach Frank Bradley "his proper place in the scheme of things" when Frank mugged Lucille Hewitt of the Betting Shop's takings in September 1971. Dave, Thumbs and Andrew McPriest cornered Frank in Bet Lynch's flat. When Bet asked Dave what they'd done to Frank, he suggested Frank would be trying to "find a comfy place to lie down".
