[no bio found]
- He was originally a rather unsuccessful getaway driver for a gang of bank robbers. While serving time in prison, he wrote a novel which he showed to writer 'Alan Plater' (qv) who was giving a lecture at the prison. Plater encouraged him to use his experiences as a "villain" as background for writing radio plays. This led to his far more successful career as a writer for programmes such as _"The Sweeney" (1975)_ (qv), _"London's Burning" (1988)_ (qv) and _"Minder" (1979)_ (qv).
- He was in a car crash early in his life in which he lost an eye, broke his nose and injured his back so he could hardly turn his head.
