Scottish gangster Andrew ‘Dumbo’ Gallacher dies in jail

Andrew ‘Dumbo’ Gallacher was found dead in his cell at Addiewell prison. The convicted heroin dealer was serving 20 years after being convicted for murder plots on Steven ‘Bonzo’ Daniel, 41, and others. ‘Bonzo’, nephew of late crime kingpin Jamie Daniel, was tailed in a 100mph car chase and carved up by machetes in May 2019. Gallacher and five Lyons gang cronies were caged for a total of 104 years. They turned Glasgow into a war zone as they plotted to kill their rivals. Gallacher had been a main player in the war between the Lyons and Daniel families. In August Gallacher was slashed in the head by another prisoner in an ambush.
