He met the Krays as a teenager and, after giving evidence at their trial, he left Britain in 1969 for a new life in America. Today he lives in Cedar Hills, Utah with his third wife Dawne. He and his brothers, Alfie Teale and David Teale owned a club in Angel, Islington called the 66 Club, which was their mother's.
Teale later gave evidence against the Krays in their trial.
