Now a major film directed by Idris Elba, Yardie by Victor Headley shone a light on the brutal underworld of 90s London gang culture.

At Heathrow Airport’s busy immigration desk, a newly arrived Jamaican strolls through with a kilo of top-grade cocaine strapped to his body. And keeps on walking . . .

By the time the syndicate get to hear about the missing consignment, D is in business – for himself – as the Front Line’s newest don.

But D’s treachery will never be forgotten – or forgiven. The message filters down from the Yardie crime lords to their soldiers on the streets:

Find D. Find the merchandise. And make him pay for his sins . . .
