Hooligan. Gangster. Legend
This British crime epic charts the inexorable rise of Carlton Leach from one of the most feared generals of the football terraces to leader of a notorious gang of criminals who rampaged their way through London and Essex during the late eighties and early 90s.
The story spans three decades: from football hooliganism through to Leach’s burgeoning career as a bouncer, his involvement in the criminal aspects of the early ‘rave’ scene and subsequently his rise to power as one of the most feared and respected villains in the country.
As his notoriety increased, Leach became entwined in a violent series of events, which culminated in the Rettendon Range Rover murders of 1995, one of the most infamous slayings in British Gangland history. This is his story.
