Bert Latham

Played by: Dave Dutton
December 1990 - 18 February 1991

Bert was a friend of Jack Duckworth's who sold Jack a dog - Boomer. Bert was actually pulling a fast one on Jack - Boomer was short for Boomerang, and no matter who Bert sold him to, he always returned to Bert. Boomer managed to steal the Duckworth's Christmas dinner, and whilst he trapped them upstairs, he ate the turkey. Later, Boomer caused the Street's first fox hunt, involving Jack, Curly, Bert, Boomer and the Wiltons 'pet' fox, which ended with Mavis smashing Bert over the head with a frying pan.
