Bradley Welsh: Britain’s Youngest Criminal Mastermind

Bradley Welsh, a notorious figure in Edinburgh's underworld, was arrested at the tender age of 17, becoming Britain's youngest criminal mastermind. His cunning and audacity earned him a reputation as a ruthless operator, leading a gang responsible for a series of high-profile crimes, including extortion, drug trafficking, and armed robbery. Welsh's reign ended abruptly when he was apprehended by police in 1995, facing a lengthy prison sentence. However, his story did not end there. Upon his release, Welsh embarked on a remarkable transformation, penning the successful autobiographical crime novel "Mr. Goodbar" and becoming an active campaigner against youth violence. His journey from juvenile delinquent to respected author and community advocate serves as a testament to the power of redemption and the human capacity for change.
