“A former soap opera star who admitted driving the getaway car in a gangland shooting has been cleared of murder, it can now be reported. Brian Regan, 53, who played Terry Sullivan in Channel 4’s Brookside, was found not guilty at Liverpool crown court of the killing of nightclub doorman Bahman Faraji, 44. Regan was convicted of perverting the course of justice by lying to police in the early stages of the murder investigation and disposing of a pair of gloves he had worn on the night of the killing. Regan, who was on bail for supplying cocaine when the murder took place in February 2011, was jailed on 25 January for four years 10 months. The facts of the case can be revealed after Mrs Justice Nicola Davies lifted reporting restrictions put in place to avoid prejudicing the trial of another defendant, Jason Gabbana.”
