Laughing killer gets life twice.

Byline: DON MACKAY

YARDIE killer Bryan McLeish laughed as he was given two life sentences yesterday for the murder of two men who double-crossed him in a pounds 20,000 drugs deal.

McLeish, 31, shouted "Ha, ha" as he was led to the cells after an Old Bailey jury found him guilty.

He killed his victims after they cheated him over a cocaine haul smuggled from Jamaica to London.

Godfrey Scott, 35, was tracked down to his East London home and shot.

Ray Samuels, 32, was kidnapped and taken to McLeish's home on the Clapton Park estate.

There, he was tied up, had boiling water poured over him and was burnt before being suffocated and dumped in Epping Forest.

Another gang member, Bonnie Ambersley, 30, was jailed for eight years for the manslaughter of Scott after being found not guilty of his murder.

He also got seven years for his part in the plot to smuggle cocaine into Britain from Jamaica.
