He had also been part of the Kray gang before he joined the one led by Charlie and Eddie Richardson and turned against them during a turf war.
The day before his murder, a shootout ensued in a Catford nightclub between the Richardson gang and Richard Hart, who was linked to the Kray twins but shot dead.
Cornell was not at the club at the time and therefore not arrested – but visited the Blind Beggar pub just a mile from the Krays' home.
Ronnie Kray learned of his whereabouts and proceeded to shoot and kill him on March 9, 1966.
