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 nineties. 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.

I became really interested in the Rettendon murders after watching this. If you want to know more about the factual story I'd recommend the Essex Boys & Bonded By Blood books by Bernard O'Mahoney. First books I'd read since I was at school and couldn't put them down.
Bernie has crime scene photos of the three that were blasted by shotguns on his website. Absolutely shocking they are.
