Originally from the slums of Jamaica, Yardie gangs emerged in the 60s, spawning powerful groups known as posses - the two most powerful and influential being the Spangler and Shower posses.
Yardie gangs began to surface in Britain in the early 80s in areas of London, Birmingham and Bristol where communities originally from Jamaica had settled.
They fought each other over control of the drug trade, prostitution and shebeens – illegal drinking and gambling clubs.
One of the most notorious Yardie gang incidents in Britain happened in 1993 when posse members shot dead DJ William Danso at a house in Clapham, London, then gunned down unarmed community constable Patrick Dunne, who was passing on his bicycle.
Feared Yardie gunman Gary ‘Tyson’ Nelson was jailed for life for the murders.
