Colin Gunn has been at the heart of organised crime in Nottingham

Colin Gunn has been at the heart of organised crime in Nottingham for a long time.
Despite a ban on the media revealing his identity, few people had not heard his name in connection with gun crime in the city.He was one of three men jailed for life last June (2007) for conspiracy to murder John and John Stirland in Trusthorpe, Lincolnshire, in August 2004.He has been linked to the raid on the jeweller's shop in Arnold which led to the shooting of Marian Bates and the subsequent disappearance of the suspected gunman James Brodie.He allegedly paid hitman John McSally to shoot gang associate Patrick Marshall outside the Park Tavern pub in Bulwell in February 2004.Rumours on the Bestwood Estate also linked him and his associates to the shootings of David Draycott and John Shippam. No one has ever been charged with either murder.And now he has been found guilty of plotting to corrupt Notts police officers.Gunn denied all the allegations against him but was convicted of conspiracy to murder the Stirlands and a plot to corrupt police after two trials.He is likely to spend much of the rest of his life behind bars.
