Carlton Leach (born 12 March 1959) is an author, occasional actor, and a former criminal.
He was born in Canning Town, (East London since 1965). Leach was catapulted into a criminal career by his love of West Ham United F.C. Before long, he was a member of the notorious Inter City Firm, a gang of hooligans who followed the East London club.
Three of the gang, Pat Tate, Tony Tucker and Craig Rolfe, would eventually meet an abrupt and bloody end in December 1995, when they were shot to death in a Range Rover on a farm track in Rettendon, in what are known as the Rettendon Triple Murders.
