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.
He started work as a bouncer in East London, where he became involved with Pat Tate and Tony Tucker, both of whom worked as large scale dealers in ecstasy during the rave era in the late 1980s.
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.
In 2003 he wrote a memoir about his criminal exploits entitled Muscle. In 2007 a film based on the book was released entitled Rise of the Footsoldier starring Ricci Harnett as Leach.
In 2015, Carlton Leach worked with Ricci Harnet to organise another movie about his life; Reign of the General but after a lost court battle over copy right, the film was taken over by the owners of Rise of the Footsoldier 1 and released. The same people went on to make Part 3 of the franchise in 2017, but Leach claimed to have no part in the movie and took to Twitter to say that it was fictional and he wanted fans to know that he it was no longer his story .
