PRASAD:

Can’t have all this noise.

(Beats.)

Okay.

LINDSAY:

I need to urinate.

PRASAD:

Kate pulls up in her car short of the cordon screening off

the overturned prison vehicle, the trapped ambush vehicle

plus patrol cars, a fire engine and an ambulance with blue

A couple of uniforms are taking a statement from the motorist

Kate shows ID and advances through the cordon, joining up

with Steve and Hastings.
