Er....Don't believe all you see in films that are NEARLY, loosely based on the occasional fact but are actually pure FICTION, mate!!

He was on that tv documentary with his new wife... the one about gangsters wives/girlfriends and girls who actively seek out that type to date etc.

Didnt look big on it but suppose he is older now...

My ex's dad knew all them and did prison time with Pat tate.

Dont know much how true the film is but i know the pizza shop scene with pat tate was 100% real to every last detail.

Iv just read his book, im quite fond of the guy to be honest. Him tony and craig were HEAVY juicers big guys, tony especially! Craig was portrayed as a bit weak in the film but purely because carlton didnt like him.

Pat Tate was the biggest of the 3, there are pics of Pat in prison and hes ripped.

dont think Carlton is that tall, just stocky.

Leaches book, Muscle, is a great read. Whether its all true or party fiction i dont know, probably is, but still a gripping read, especially as i work the doors.

I've seen the film and read Carlton Leach's book Muscle which I actually enjoyed. It tells about the moor murders and the film rise of the foot solider has been embellished quite a bit.

afraid not mate the pizza shop guy was attacked but there is a police photo of him after the event it was little more than a scratch to the forhead, he later withdrew his statment after finding out who tate was....

essexs boys, bonded by blood, bloggs 19, and last man standing. last man standing is writen by nipper ellis the bloke who shot pat tate in the arm, it is a good book bonded by blood is by far the best account of the essex boys, and a film is being made.
