Lyons, 42, refused to go to court to give evidence and wrote to prosecutors to say Allen had nothing to do with the attack on February 21, 2021. It was alleged that, over a nine-year period, she obtained unspecified sums of money “through the involvement of James White in serious organised crime and thereafter converted it by purchasing assets to legitimise its origins”. As a young man in Glasgow’s underworld, Ian "Blink" MacDonald earned a reputation for fighting and stabbing his enemies.

Father-of-two Mr Fleeman died at the scene after Lyons rammed his van, causing it to leave the road and overturn.

They’ve been shared around a pool of officers, many of whom will have had no previous connection to the informant. The police managed to trace the duo within the hour and Goldfarb was found to be carrying a lock-knife.

A gangland enforcer who targeted an innocent couple's home in a bid to frighten them into paying off their son's huge drug debt has been jailed for 14 months. The owner of a long criminal record, Docherty had been jailed for seven years in 1996 for attempted murder with a machete, and after being released, was caged again after being caught with a pistol and ammunition while out on licence. The offences were said to have taken place at her home in Gartcosh, elsewhere in the UK and abroad between November 2011 and July 2020. He had a predilection for deploying power-tools and blow-torches in his day-to-day activity of enforcing the will of his boss, Jamie Daniels, head of the clan that bears the family name. Ferguson sustained a head injury and Billy Joe Bates sustained a number of injuries including a fatal deep stab wound to the chest.

Glasgow is no stranger to rival criminal gangs fighting for territory and influence, but many believe the war really erupted in 2001, when a stash of cocaine belonging to the Daniels was stolen and sold to the Lyons family.

Gerard McTaggart, 47, took carrier bags containing thousands of pounds to several locations linked to organised crime as part of a money laundering scheme. In March 2002, Trevor Lawson, 32, died after being hit by a car near his home in Denny, Stirlingshire, having fled from a fight. The court heard that after the Gillespie brothers disappeared, White took over the gang, which operated on an "international scale" in countries including Italy, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, Russia and Brazil.

McTaggart’s prominence within this illicit network further heightened the significance of his conviction. After his release, his drug-fuelled violent lifestyle created conflict with the police and rival gangsters.

There have been daylight shootings outside two primary schools in Glasgow at times of the day when children were being fetched by their parents. In Scotland’s Wildest Bank Robber, Blink provides an eye-opening account of how he survived gangland warfare, prisons, stabbings and bombs.

He had not previously been arrested due to a lack of evidence and his "whereabouts unknown" at the time. There was already tension between them as they were operating in the neighbouring areas of Milton and Possil, both a few miles north of the city centre, and the drugs theft escalated the simmering tensions. This case is a good example of how we utilise our resources along with the expertise of partner agencies to disrupt this kind of activity. The court heard how Ferguson arranged for the deliveries of controlled drugs and large sums of cash to the north of Scotland.
