Oh, f***!

Oh, come on! Come on!

F***'s sake!

Help! Help, someone!

Let me in, please!

Someone, please, help me!

Let me in! Please!

Sh*t. No, please, let me go.

Please. Please! Please!

F***ing... Oh! F*** off!

Please, please... Please don't hurt me.

'This is the police.

Please wait to be connected. '

Now what? Get up! Get up!

Right, get up! Get up!


F***ing get off him!

You don't know... No! No!

F*** you!


You b*tch!

Wait, wait...

Please help me! Please!

Shut the f*** up!


Shut up!

Help! Please! Help me!

Please! Help me!

Help! Help me! Please!

Look, I told you, I was mugged.

I never saw anybody attack that boy.

The paramedics found you

outside your door.

- It must have been the same people.

- I never saw them.

- Was your partner in?

- He doesn't live here anymore.

Look, I've spoken to everyone

and we've got nothing to help us

identify the attackers.

- Nothing at all.

- It's not my fault.

Please. I know you're scared,

but we can protect you.

We want to put away whoever did this.

The boy's father has given us names of

several people his son hung around with.

We can do a line up,

but without a witness, we have nothing!

- Why won't any of you talk to us?

- I told you, I never saw anything!


If you think of anything else,

please call me.

Take it from me,

a hint of paperwork, boredom'll get ya.

Nah, Daniel's not gonna let that happen.

Officer on deck.

- See ya later, Guv.

- See ya later.

- Anything?

- Complete waste of time.

Half of them didn't even

want to be seen talking to me.

- Forensics?

- Nothing useful.

It's a public area.

Everyone and their grandma's left traces.


and nobody saw a f***ing thing!

No, they never do.

Come on.

They don't want us here.

I'll show you

the top floor and the roof.

The rest is all boarded up.

I mean, if it was me,

I wouldn't wait for rehousing.

I'd kip on a mate's sofa till they found me

somewhere. But no, not this lot.

They're sticking it out.

God help them.

Can't you... convince them?

First thing I thought of.

Council said it's illegal, technically a bribe.

I said, "Call it a goodwill gift. "

They wouldn't have any of it.

No, I mean... persuade them.

Make them want to leave.

Yeah, well, I might have to

if this drags on any longer.

- It's down here.

- OK.

Bloody kids keep trying to pick the lock.

If one of them gets in and falls off

the roof, whose fault is it?

Eh? Yeah.

Muggins here. Come on.

I said leave me alone!

- Let's just talk about it.

- It won't change anything.


I'll go first thing in the morning,

stay at my mum's.

We can son this out.

I'm so sorry.

- Vic, are you on, mate?

- 'Yeah. '

I'm on the bridge. Can you give me

a bit of cover in a minute

cos I think Little Nunn's been...

He's in all kinds of trouble over here.

Can you cover me?

I need to... There's loads of them.

Honestly, it's f***ing carnage.

Not again!

- Are you still on that bloody computer?

- Mum, you have to knock!

- What's all the shouting?

- The internet's freezing.

It's ruining my scores.

Are they working on the roof?

I don't know. It might be an excuse

to get some fresh air.

- Come on, it'll do you good.

- OK! After this game.

Well, I tried!

Tell him the building's on fire.

Come on, you scrawny bastard.

I wish.

We might get rehoused quicker.

Are you deaf?

What the f*** did I say to you?

Get inside your room now! Let's go!

You never do what you're told!

All the time talking the piss!

- Excuse the residents.

- I've seen worse.

- Don't f***ing think I don't know!

- Get away!

What you playing at?

Mr Rawlins.

Checking on your investment?

Yeah, all the good it's done me.

Had any word from the council?

Not yet, no.

No, didn't bloody think so.

You taking the f***ing piss!

Don't smile at me!

Are you smiling at me? Don't you smile

at me! Or I'm gonna hit you!

What? It's my f***ing kids, innit?

You're not knocking it down now,

are you?

Just a preliminary check.

Good! You better f***ing not be,

cos we'll go when the council says

and not before! Do you hear me?

- They can hear you in Australia, love.

- Good!

Should be a piece of cake.

We just wait for everyone to leave.

Do we have to?

Come on!

- Hi, Liz.

- 'Hi!'

- 'Are you coming to thingy's leaving do?'

- I don't know.

'Oh! Even/one's going.

It'll be a laugh!'

Er... No. I've hardly known him

the whole time he's worked there.

I don't even know his name.

Anyway, you know I hate work dos.

'L'll keep calling until you say yes!

You know I will!'

Hello there, blondie!

You look f***ing lovely, don't ya?

- Time to pay me.

- Piss off.

Eh? What did I just f***ing say to you?

Do you need me to come in there, do ya?

That's it. It's f***ing easy.

Oh, it's going up next week, as well.

- What?

- 30 instead of 20.

- Why? No, I can't afford...

- I know. Inflation and sh*t.

Still, there are other methods

in which you can pay me.

- Oh, f*** you!

- I'd love to smell your morning breath.

Shame, that.

Right up my f***ing street and all.

Hello, Nanna! Did you miss me?

All right, Vi. I got this.

- Let's have it, then.

- Good manners cost nothing.

You're not paying me

for f***ing good manners.

No. I'm paying you

not to smash up our flat.

Don't expect me

to be scared of you, though.

Bye then, son!

Brave old soldier, you, eh?

Bet your Mrs isn't so brave, though.
