Hi guys (and girls), I'm new here so please be gentle!

Basically I am looking for any information (current or historic) on the existance of street gangs / organised crime in Leicester.

I've lived here all of my life and I know there are many nasty estates and ethnic areas in the city but street gangs / organised crime doesn't seem to be prevelant here. The most notrious leicester related thing I can find is the burger van wars from the 80's / 90's. I know there is a big Albanian and Polish presence here aswell as Indian / Pakistani / Somalian but I still cant seem to come accross any gang / organised crime stuff relating to any of these.

I have a general interest - I'm a crime writer (no, not a Journo) and just have a general interest in the underworld / organised crime.

If anybody has any news on Leicester i would love to hear more!
