A drug baron who had an associate killed after planning the hit from his prison cell has been jailed for life.
Mark Osborne, 26, arranged for Mark Tredinnick, 39, to be lured to his death in a quiet country lane in Romford.
He was shot nine times in front of partner Kerri Ann Shanahan and their son.
The judge told Mark Osbourne and his brother Tony: ''You both decided that he had to be eliminated, no doubt to save face and stamp authority in the Essex drugs world where, I am satisfied you had been substantial players."
