THIS is the incredible Sunday World photograph which shows two gunmen, one wearing a dress, fleeing from the Regency Hotel following the most shocking gangland slaying in Irish criminal history.

In a scene straight out of Reservoir Dogs, one starts to remove his blonde wig as he runs for a getaway van which is carrying up to four men disguised as armed Gardaí.

The second gunman doesn’t even cover his face as he runs from the hotel, where the body of gangster David Byrne is lying in reception.
