A FORMER gang leader who became a crime author is to hold a book signing at mobile phone repair shop in Rhyl

Charlie Seiga, now in his 80s, will be at Cell Tech, on Market Street, between 1-4pm on September 28 to hold a Q&A session and to sign copies of his books.

It follows on from a similar appearance he made at Rhyl’s White Rose Centre last November.

The event will be free of charge, and is sponsored by the White Rose Vapour e-cigarette shop, based in Rhyl's White Rose Shopping Centre.

Previously the leader of Liverpool’s “Jelly Gang”, Charlie has written a series of crime books inspired by his own life experiences.

Having been a petty thief in his teens, his idea of using explosives to crack safes cemented his place in a criminal gang, before he later turned to armed robbery.
