was born in Devon in 1968. On my father's side we have Scottish blood - 'Leitch' are of the Clan MacBeath;
and on my mother's side my blood is Irish/Welsh - my mother's maiden-name is 'Morgan'.
name, Yuri, is Russian (but I am not), it is also a Japanese girl's name and in Japan it means 'Lily'. My mother
named me after the 1965 film, Dr Zivago - the main character, played by Omar Sharif, was Yuri Zivago; my father went along
with it because of the popularity of Yuri Gagarin - the first person to journey into outer space. My girlfriend calls me 'Lily'
and my sisters and nieces call me 'Yor'.
