Three men have been jailed for life for the "calculated and cold-blooded" murder of a nightclub doorman.

Bahman Faraji, 44, was shot in the head outside the Belgrave public house in Aigburth, Liverpool, in February 2011.

Gunman Edward Heffey, 41, was jailed for a minimum of 35 years and Jason Gabbana, 29, who ordered the shooting, was ordered to serve at least 33 years.

Simon Smart, 33, who lured Mr Faraji to the scene, received a minimum term of 31 years at Liverpool Crown Court.

Former Brookside actor Brian Regan, 53, who admitted being Heffey's getaway driver, was cleared of murder but convicted of perverting the course of justice earlier this year and has already been sentenced to four years and 10 months.

Heffey, Gabbana and Smart, all from Liverpool, were convicted of murder by 11 to one majorities.

Then judge, Justice Nicola Davies, said: "The murder of Bahman Faraji was as calculated as it was cold-blooded.

"This was a carefully planned and executed killing carried out upon the instructions of Jason Gabbana."

The killing is thought to have been the result of a gangland feud.
