This will sound unlikely but as long as it is leather and not suede; just spray the ink with a little hair spray/lacquer and it should rub off with a cloth. It works on a lot of different surfaces but don't try it on anything which has a nap, like suede and fabric.

I have used this often and it does work, this was a tip I picked up from watching the 'How clean is your house' team, Kim and Aggie on tv.

Is it the alcohol in the hairspray that removes the ink from the leather - therefore can I just use rubbing alcohol?

Yes, that is my understanding. I would use a 91% or 99% isopropyl alcohol, which will evaporate entirely. I'd test a small section that is hidden first though, because the alcohol could remove the leather's color, depending on how it was tanned/dyed.
