Ex-soap star on gun murder charge

A former soap star has been charged with the murder of a nightclub doorman who was gunned down in the street, police have said.

Brian Regan, 53, who played Terry Sullivan in the Liverpool-based Channel 4 drama Brookside, is accused of the murder of Bahman Faraji.

Mr Faraji was shot dead outside a pub in Aigburth, Liverpool, on February 24.

Detectives have also charged Lee George Dodson, 42, of Logfield Drive, Garston, with the murder of Mr Faraji, a father-of-one who lived in Toxteth.

Regan, of St Mary's Road, Garston, Liverpool, also faces an allegation of perverting the course of justice.

Both men are due to appear at Liverpool Magistrates' Court.
