Our man at the Yard tells us that the Met is not as laissez faire
as we may have thought. Last week’s story about Mainland PR’s burglary
suggested the police had sent a DIY fingerprint kit rather than making a
visit themselves to check for evidence. In fact, forensics were sent to
the scene of the crime, although corporate PR man Ralph Jackson, who
shares an office with Mainland, was sent a DIY kit so that he could
eliminate himself from the investigation.
