In recent years in Hull, crime has been falling at a record rate.

think he's deliberately tried to knock us over. But the traffic cops

:00:38.:00:43.

are determined to get through to youngsters. Why don't you play

:00:43.:00:49.

football? Before the wheels fall off. Inevitably, some people will

just want to fight with you Apart from the iconic Humber Bridge,

:01:15.:01:22.

Kingston Upon Hull's prominent landmark is its sea port. It's one

:01:22.:01:27.

of Britain's busiest. It handles freight to and from the continent

:01:28.:01:33.

and more than a million passengers pass through it a year. The docks

:01:33.:01:36.

are on the east side of Hull. An area that's like home to traffic

:01:36.:01:45.

cop PC Claire Large. Having worked in Hull for the last six years and

:01:46.:01:51.

been predominantly on the eastern side of the city, I still linger

:01:51.:01:56.

around the east side of the city because I know it better, and you

:01:56.:02:00.

get to know where the hot spots are, where you're most likely to find

:02:00.:02:03.

people committing offences. This afternoon, eastern promise is not

going unfulfilled. A red transit flatbed passed us as we were sat at

:02:15.:02:18.

traffic lights. The driver looked too young for the vehicle he was

:02:18.:02:24.

sitting in. We decided to find out what Licensee had for it. As we

:02:24.:02:30.

went around, to go after him, he turned off the road we were on,

:02:30.:02:35.

down a dead-end street. Having worked in the area long enough, we

:02:35.:02:41.

know it leads on to a travellers' site. And that might be bad news

:02:42.:02:49.

for the cops. We would have a third of to have stopped it before it

:02:49.:02:54.

reached the travel site, mainly because what usually happens once

:02:54.:02:59.

the police car is seen within the site, everybody likes to come out

:02:59.:03:06.

and have a look. You certainly know that you're going to be confronted.

:03:06.:03:10.

Nine times out of 10. Not only by the person you're dealing with, but,

:03:11.:03:17.

potentially, dozens more. So far so good. The young van driver has come

:03:17.:03:23.

quietly and has even admitted he shouldn't be driving. I am

:03:23.:03:33.
:03:33.:03:36.

He offered information to was there was no insurance on the van, he

:03:36.:03:40.

didn't have a licence to drive it. He knew he was going to be

:03:40.:03:44.

prosecuted for it. It was like he'd been through it all before, dare I

:03:44.:03:50.

say. Have you got the keys? Curiously, despite just parking up,

:03:50.:03:56.

the keys have gone astray. about small kid over there to get

:03:56.:04:06.
:04:06.:04:10.

the keys. Which one? The little Can you go and get the keys to the

:04:10.:04:15.

ban for me? Because the driver's not insured, the police are going

:04:15.:04:23.

to have the vehicle seized. Whose van is it? My dad. Where is your

:04:23.:04:32.

dad? He doesn't know you have got it? All right? Does your dad had

:04:32.:04:39.

insurance on it? Yes. The vehicle came back saying it had recently

:04:39.:04:45.

been bought and they haven't fulfilled the logbook, yet. Or it

:04:45.:04:55.
:04:55.:04:56.

is in trade at some point. His dad doesn't know he has got it. Do you

:04:56.:05:04.

want me to get the keys for you? that point, I let my colleague no

:05:04.:05:09.

that he had said his Dad didn't know he had the vehicle. That means,

:05:09.:05:12.

he can also be charged with TWOC. Taking the vehicle without the

:05:12.:05:18.

owner's consent. What have you got him for? I'm his mam. Basically,

:05:18.:05:23.

he's driving a vehicle with no insurance. We are trying to

:05:23.:05:29.

establish whose vehicle it is. dad is on his way back now.

:05:29.:05:39.
:05:39.:05:43.

owns the vehicle? His dad. mother has dobbed him right in it.

:05:43.:05:50.

Right, I'm locking you up for theft. It's my lorry. You're getting

:05:50.:05:56.

arrested now for theft! You are getting be arrested for theft! Is

:05:56.:06:05.

it my lorry? Tell them it's mine! Just tell them it's my lorry!

:06:05.:06:11.

Thanks a lot, Sharon. Thanks a lot. It is his lorry. He's taking

:06:11.:06:17.

lessons. Things started to get heated and I called on the radio.

:06:17.:06:21.

It's always nice to have two or three people standing by, just in

:06:21.:06:31.
:06:31.:06:52.

Get off him! Get off him! Can we I was scared. We were two officers

:06:52.:06:57.

used my back on. -- in the force. I realise we don't either have a good

colleagues has paid off for PC Large. Just 30 seconds after

:07:37.:07:40.

pressing the panic button on her radio, help's arrived. Fortunately,

:07:40.:07:50.
:07:50.:08:08.

as they pulled down the street, When an assistant call goes out,

everybody drops everything and goes. It's the one time everybody does

that. PC Caroll has bitten off more than he can chew. I think it is my

:08:25.:08:34.
:08:35.:08:47.

tooth. He was a strong kid. He I never saw how he managed to head

:08:47.:08:53.

but her mother. He had blood on the side of his mouth. That's when I

:08:53.:09:02.

found out he was losing his teeth. I have got a loose tooth. I leave

:09:02.:09:07.

you alone for two minutes, don't I? It can be daunting going on to a

:09:07.:09:14.

travellers' site. It is a daunting place. We are not animals, you know.

:09:14.:09:22.

They kicked my daughter. Members of his family continued to throw abuse.

:09:23.:09:26.

It's a hierarchical situation. They want to show they are not afraid of

:09:26.:09:34.

us. And they will have their say, come what may. It's time for the

:09:34.:09:40.

young man to go west. The quickest solution for us was to get that

:09:40.:09:44.

vehicle off site and for us to leave them to it.

:09:44.:09:47.

Hull's maritime links make it an ideal gateway for shipping cars in

:09:47.:09:54.

and out of the country. Legal and illegal ones. PC Andy Stainton is

:09:54.:09:57.

part of a crack team, the road crime squad, that's helped reduce

:09:57.:10:04.

vehicle crime by 20%. They are constantly on the look out for

:10:04.:10:11.

organised criminals stealing high value cars to export abroad. Can I

:10:11.:10:14.

have a moving vehicle check, please? That means checking up on

:10:14.:10:19.

any exotic cars they might come across. It is a very nice motor. A

:10:19.:10:26.

Lamborghini. A lot of high powered vehicles get stolen to order and

:10:26.:10:31.

end up in shipping containers to other destinations in the world.

:10:31.:10:35.

PNC facility, so we'll give it a pull. With no computer to check on

:10:35.:10:38.

the Lamborghini's details, it will have to be stopped instead. If he

:10:38.:10:48.
:10:48.:10:51.

decides to go for the open road. He We followed him for three-quarters

:10:51.:10:54.

of a mile through the city streets and he failed to stop for as which

:10:54.:11:01.

makes us wary of what he has got to hide. With a top speed of over 200

:11:01.:11:03.

miles per hour, the Lamborghini Murcielago's built for speed.

:11:03.:11:07.

Luckily, the driver's not letting it off its leash. But then he's not

:11:07.:11:17.
:11:17.:11:38.

He's not going to stop for us, is It was a giant dead end surrounded

:11:38.:11:45.

by 30 ft brick walls. Why didn't he stop? Has he got weapons in here,

:11:45.:11:51.

other people who will come out and jump on us? You are lucky I did not

:11:51.:11:56.

stick this inside the car. Give me your keys. Get out. We have been

:11:56.:12:04.

trying to stop you since English did. Get out, please. Get out. Is

:12:04.:12:13.

there no interior mirror? You don't here with your eyes, don't you?

:12:13.:12:21.

Our blue lights are very, very visible and you can hear the siren

:12:21.:12:25.

even above the roar of the engine. You can see the blue lights. You

:12:25.:12:33.

should have stopped. Listen to me... Do you understand that? We make the

:12:33.:12:40.

rules on the road. Not you. Do you understand that? Yes, I do. He was

:12:40.:12:43.

shouted at and I told him what I wanted from him in no uncertain

:12:43.:12:47.

terms. The car isn't stolen but it has got an illegal number plate.

:12:47.:12:51.

The absence of a manufacturer's mark gives it away. For whatever

:12:51.:12:54.

reason, he's got the wrong number plate on it. So it's a little bit

:12:54.:12:58.

strange at the minute. But it's a nice car. We don't see many of

:12:58.:13:00.

these around. There's something very funny about the number plate.

:13:00.:13:05.

It says it's not a Lamborghini Murcielago at all. It's a Peugeot

:13:05.:13:15.
:13:15.:13:17.

406. It has got the Lamborghini bodyshell on Nov. -- now. He says

:13:18.:13:22.

he is just driven it back from the show. He said whoever was at the

:13:22.:13:28.

show, put the number plates on. No, no, he's had it a while.

:13:28.:13:31.

Stainton believes the car hasn't been stolen to order but he's less

:13:31.:13:34.

than convinced about the owner's reason for using false plates. And

:13:34.:13:38.

has got his own theory about them. I think he's done it to evade speed

:13:38.:13:42.

cameras probably. But I'll have a chat with him. He seems to have

:13:42.:13:47.

calmed down. Most of the time it's done to evade prosecution, I have

:13:47.:13:57.

no doubt. He is trying to avoid prosecution. However, every dog has

:13:57.:14:00.

its day. We will stop those vehicles and we will find out the

:14:00.:14:05.

truth. And then, whatever prosecution comes their way, comes

:14:05.:14:10.

their way. What's coming the Murcielago owner's way is a ticket.

:14:10.:14:17.

For his incorrect plate. established the identity of the car.

:14:17.:14:21.

He invited me in and we had a cup of tea. It worked out well in the

:14:22.:14:26.

end. Sadly, the man's hospitality doesn't include a spin in his nice

:14:26.:14:30.

motor. I would like to have a go in his vehicle but looking at the size

:14:30.:14:40.

of me, I probably wouldn't have With no sign of hospitality at the

:14:40.:14:42.

travellers' site, the tricky task of extricating the uninsured van is

:14:42.:14:52.
:14:52.:14:54.

being hampered. It belongs to my dad. I am pregnant. Without the

:14:54.:15:03.

keys, the cops are going to have to wait for a tow truck. Regardless of

:15:03.:15:09.

what was happening, we were taking that vehicle. Throughout the whole

:15:09.:15:16.

time we were there, it remained quite volatile. Shouting, swearing,

:15:16.:15:26.
:15:26.:15:28.

spitting, throwing eggs. Caroll's teeth are still on edge.

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:15:40.

He lost three teeth in all. Up to 15 police officers were on the site.

:15:40.:15:45.

We are not there for other calls. If we can get out of that situation

:15:45.:15:50.

as quickly as possible, the majority of those officers are

:15:50.:15:54.

released to go to the general members of public who are crying

:15:54.:16:04.

out for our help. After midnight, there's a different sort of

:16:04.:16:08.

pressure for the cops. It's a time when crime increases as

:16:08.:16:13.

opportunists take advantage of the dark, quiet streets. Fortunately,

:16:13.:16:15.

for PCs Dave Stevenson and Alex Weekes, the night's been

:16:15.:16:25.

uncharacteristically quiet, so far. Getting into the wee small hours.

:16:25.:16:32.

It has been quite a strange night. Not a lot has been happening. We

:16:32.:16:42.
:16:42.:16:43.

are at a low ebb. Then a call came in. The caller has been burgled,

:16:43.:16:47.

and not only have his car keys been stolen, but he's been relieved of

:16:47.:16:50.

his car as well. The vehicle had been stolen as part of what we call

:16:51.:16:59.

a hanoi burglary. It is a two in one burglary where someone goes

:16:59.:17:05.

into the house and takes the car keys and start the car. It's been

:17:05.:17:12.

taken from very nearby, by someone the owner knows. We were looking

:17:12.:17:20.

for a blue Peugeot which had been taken by a kid. He was

:17:20.:17:27.

predominantly known for working in and around the east of the city.

:17:27.:17:36.

Can you see if there are any dog handlers available? Because of the

nature of the job be put in some requests for pursuit management

have somebody ring in almost instantly after the offence has

:18:09.:18:19.
:18:19.:18:21.

happened, you know you have to beat on a winner. What is that? And the

:18:21.:18:30.

cops have suddenly got that winning feeling. We are there. We are on

:18:30.:18:34.

the front foot. He is not expecting us to be coming down the road

:18:34.:18:44.
:18:44.:18:55.

towards him like we were. He has failed to stop. 352. We have got to

:18:55.:19:05.
:19:05.:19:06.

DIS camp. Alex jumped out of the car. We were not aware of another

:19:07.:19:12.

person until a second person got out of the passenger side. You feel

:19:12.:19:17.

like it is almost slow-motion. You know what is coming. I thought the

:19:17.:19:23.

driver was going to get himself run over because he left himself

:19:24.:19:28.

rolling. The passenger has not quickly gone out of the cart and

:19:28.:19:35.

gone, he delays a couple of seconds. The car rolls further before it

:19:35.:19:44.

comes to a stop. I am in a position to stop it, get out and go after

:19:44.:19:52.

him. The driver hurdles a 4.5 foot fence. He is a way, like a whippet

:19:52.:19:58.

down the drain bank. I have a foot chase was somebody who is hurdling

:19:58.:20:08.
:20:08.:20:09.

fences. I hobble over the fence and go after him. He darts to the

:20:09.:20:14.

right.. But there's only the drain to the right, and it's the size of

:20:14.:20:19.

a small river. And he's jumped right into it. I lost the passenger

:20:19.:20:25.

because I stopped to see what was going on. He cannot get out.

:20:26.:20:31.

kid tried to turn and run back in the opposite direction. He went

:20:31.:20:41.

straight into the water. Stay with him. I am talking to the Mail. We

:20:41.:20:48.

are returning to our vehicle to get a lifeline. He cannot get up. The

:20:48.:20:54.

banks are too high. I tried to get a sighting of him. Are you all

:20:54.:21:02.

right? Keep talking to me. He goes completely silent. Left, directly

:21:02.:21:10.

down in front of you. I will talk to him. The male in the water is

:21:10.:21:20.
:21:20.:21:37.

Myself and Mark Green, we pulled I will update them that we got him

:21:37.:21:40.

out. The lad's been rescued from drowning in the drain but what he

:21:40.:21:43.

was doing in there in the first place is a complete mystery. He's

:21:43.:21:47.

denying he had anything to do with the stolen Peugeot. It was quite

:21:47.:21:56.

funny. You have seen him run from the car, go into the water, the

:21:56.:22:00.

ticket out of the water and he is still saying it is not him. With

:22:00.:22:02.

the driver safely detained, the crew of the police helicopter

:22:02.:22:12.

overhead are setting about finding his passenger. We have a mail

:22:12.:22:18.

coming out of the avenue. Things played into our hands. There were

:22:18.:22:23.

no buildings in the way. We had a clear shot of where he came out.

:22:23.:22:26.

Most car thieves know they can't outrun the eye in the sky,

:22:26.:22:34.

certainly not on foot, but this one's giving it a try anyway.

:22:34.:22:40.

he heard the engines, that is when he tried to hide from us. The

:22:40.:22:46.

camera locked on to him. He is in a bush. With thermal imaging you

:22:46.:22:54.

could see he was hiding in the bushes. There was a taster officer

:22:54.:23:04.
:23:04.:23:09.

as well. He ran past the top of the avenue. Because we had offloaded

:23:10.:23:16.

the drive up into the van, we were in a position to conveying the

:23:16.:23:23.

passenger. -- driver. There's less risk being a passenger in a stolen

:23:23.:23:26.

car. They will usually get off more lightly than a driver. They are

:23:26.:23:33.

still a catch well worth suffering a bit of nettle rash for, though.

:23:33.:23:38.

Both my legs were stinging. The bottom part of my forearm were

:23:38.:23:44.

covered in an red rash for the next 24 hours. We heard about those

:23:44.:23:49.

nettle stings for the rest of the night. I have heard about them

:23:49.:23:54.

since that time! Unlike his pal, the passenger's singing. This young

:23:54.:24:03.

lad just wanted to talk. He kept saying things like, I was in bed. I

:24:03.:24:09.

did not know it was stolen. I was sleeping. Primate said he had the

:24:09.:24:19.
:24:19.:24:20.

car for 300 quid. -- my mate. someone had said that to me, I

:24:20.:24:30.
:24:30.:24:31.

would have slammed the door in his face. He failed to stop after

running from the vehicle. driver was someone who had just

:24:35.:24:42.

been released from prison. In his mind he has come out. He has

:24:42.:24:48.

nothing to lose. He does not have a licence or a job. These young lads

:24:48.:24:53.

will continue to come until they grow up or do something so serious

:24:53.:24:57.

they injure somebody else or kill somebody and end up getting sent to

:24:57.:25:07.
:25:07.:25:07.

The biggest risk for car thieves is being spotted by the cops, so, to

:25:07.:25:09.

deflect attention away from themselves, they will often put

:25:09.:25:13.

false plates on and try and look like a normal driver in a normal

:25:13.:25:22.

vehicle. But it doesn't always work. Papa 479. Young lad in it. Two

:25:22.:25:28.

females. And we just didn't like the look of it. Picking out the

:25:28.:25:31.

suspicious looking from the normal is second nature to PC Stainton.

:25:31.:25:41.

We've done various checks. It has come back as a vehicle which did

:25:41.:25:45.

not corroborate with the vehicle we were following so that suggested it

:25:45.:25:55.
:25:55.:25:56.

may be false plates. There are three occupants. We are monitoring

his progress along the A 18. There is a lay-by just up here. As it has

:26:13.:26:18.

turned right into a country road, we beckoned for it to stop. It's

:26:18.:26:21.

moved to the centre of the road. The driver's had enough of being

:26:22.:26:31.
:26:32.:26:41.

It reversed some 25 metres, 30 metres. Simon is in reverse,

:26:41.:26:48.

reversing away from it. It is like Keystone cops. The BMW has remained

:26:48.:26:58.
:26:58.:27:01.

where it is. He has engaged first The A18 runs right past

:27:01.:27:03.

Brigg town centre on the wrong side of the road. On the roundabout.

:28:42.:28:50.

precariously, taking the roundabout the wrong way as well. Taking the

:28:50.:28:56.

ring road. Plans for stinger, replies. The driver's got it all

:28:56.:28:59.

wrong. He's heading straight for the police station. And the cops

:28:59.:29:09.
:29:09.:29:10.

are waiting for him. We popped all the tyres. Even with burst tyres,

:29:10.:29:13.

this driver still has no intention of pulling over. We're still

:29:13.:29:17.

failing to stop but we do have marked cars around it. And he

:29:17.:29:20.

thinks he's found an escape route round the back of an antiques

:29:20.:29:30.
:29:30.:29:47.

dealers. Stop, stop, stop. Minor I think the driver deliberately

:29:47.:29:52.

went to knock the dog over. He clearly hit the Dog and pushed it

:29:52.:29:56.

towards the wall of the antique dealer. You can see his claws on

:29:56.:30:00.

the bonnet and he pushes it and its skids across the floor next to the

:30:00.:30:06.

wall. We are trying to get the driver at this point. As he does

:30:06.:30:10.

that, he squashes the officer between the parked vehicle and

:30:10.:30:16.

another vehicle. You can see him at rolling along the vehicle.

:30:16.:30:19.

squashed officer is the dog handler and he's had a narrower escape than

:30:19.:30:23.

his dog. Had it not been for the black vehicle being hit and moved,

he would certainly have been crushed between the two cars.

:30:30.:30:36.

was determined to get away and was going to do anything. He reverses,

:30:36.:30:40.

collides with another vehicle and eventually, then, we managed to

:30:40.:30:45.

stop the vehicle, subdue the drive and get him out. The two girls in

:30:45.:30:52.

the back of the vehicle, teenagers, both terrified. Afterwards, they

:30:52.:30:58.

had been screaming at him the, it became apparent, for him to stop.

:30:59.:31:04.

The dog got hold of the driver and I know he got a bite to the leg.

:31:04.:31:11.

Justice, some might say. As luck would have it, the better research

and comes across and says, I want to have a good your dog, please.

:31:15.:31:23.

Bring him in. No charge, nothing at all. He saw what happened. The dog

:31:33.:31:33.

had a 10 minute check-up with the bat as well. -- vet.

Apart from the best police cars in the business, like their

:31:36.:31:38.

turbocharged Mitsubishi Evolution Xs, the Humberside Road Crime Squad

:31:38.:31:42.

always have dogs travelling around with them, in a BMW as well. PC Daz

:31:42.:31:46.

Martin is one of the force's dog men who take it in turns to be on

:31:46.:31:53.

the team. It's how the shift patterns work, on a five week rota.

:31:54.:31:58.

They tell me I will go with the road crime section for five weeks.

:31:58.:32:07.

And then I come off and one of my Good boy, good boy.

:32:07.:32:11.

I find it very worthwhile and it makes a change to be dealing with

:32:11.:32:14.

the more serious end of criminality. Other than chasing car thieves,

:32:14.:32:17.

that normally means the team targets drug dealers and today is

:32:17.:32:27.
:32:27.:32:28.

no exception. Every time we are deployed to the street, we are

:32:28.:32:32.

surprised -- supplied with an intelligent pack of local people to

:32:33.:32:42.
:32:43.:32:44.

This gentleman was on our daily briefing pack. He was a

:32:44.:32:48.

disqualified driver and he was linked to possible drug dealing in

:32:48.:32:51.

his local street. The street is in Grimsby and the distinctive-looking

:32:51.:32:59.

man being sought has already been spotted, driving illegally.

:32:59.:33:05.

wears quite thick glasses. I think they were damaged, as well, a bit

:33:05.:33:12.

like Jack Duckworth's glasses. We decided to spin on the vehicle to

:33:12.:33:16.

catch him driving disqualified but unfortunately, we didn't get around

:33:16.:33:21.

in time it would be tight street we were in, and he managed to evade

:33:21.:33:24.

initially being stopped, so we decided to go to his home address

:33:24.:33:31.

and as we drove down the street, he was on foot. It's probably too late

:33:31.:33:35.

to find any drugs on the suspect and proving he was actually driving

:33:35.:33:38.

may not be that easy either. He's not going to have anything on him

:33:38.:33:45.

now, is he? You don't understand, I've just walked from my house to

:33:45.:33:50.

the shops. He's not a happy chap. He makes his feelings very plain to

:33:50.:33:57.

us. This is surging you for controlled substances. Sir Jimmy?

:33:58.:34:07.

Calm down. -- searching me? Do you understand why a You are being

:34:08.:34:17.

detained? Why are you hand cupping We will be searching your vehicle,

:34:17.:34:24.

as well. We had just seen you driving it, you see. There's

:34:25.:34:29.

nothing on me at all. The man's been arrested for disqualified

:34:29.:34:38.

driving and is being searched under the Misuse of Drugs Act. I haven't

:34:38.:34:47.

been driving! Don't swear. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.

:34:47.:34:51.

I've just come out of my mum's house and gone to the shop. Walking

:34:51.:34:58.

to the shop. You need to calm down. It would have changed my mind, no

:34:58.:35:04.

matter what he argued about. I was very confident.

:35:04.:35:10.

Calm down. Oh listen to me. By ranting and raving you're achieving

:35:10.:35:16.

absolutely nothing. This will be sorted out in the fullness of time,

:35:16.:35:26.

won't it? There is no point arguing. Sometimes people take us for fools

:35:26.:35:33.

sometimes. I'd just come from the shop. I don't think so, mate. I

:35:33.:35:37.

don't think so. Let's not be arguing in the street, shall we

:35:37.:35:43.

now? Dave hasn't got any drugs on him and he's still adamant he

:35:43.:35:48.

wasn't even in his car. I just walked from my house to the shop.

:35:48.:35:51.

No, but you don't understand, right. Yeah, I've just walked from my

:35:51.:35:59.

house to the shop. Daz is going to check out Dave's story. I was just

:35:59.:36:05.

curious. If it be in a supermarket, is quite distinctive jab, they

:36:05.:36:09.

would have remembered him. I spoke to the security guard, described

:36:09.:36:15.

him, and, not what I can remember, he says. I went to the front of the

:36:15.:36:21.

queue, spoke to the cashier, asked her the same question. No, not that

:36:21.:36:29.

I can remember. OK, fine. I think, rightly, I suspected he hadn't been

:36:29.:36:33.

in to the supermarket. While Dave cools off in the back of the Evo,

:36:33.:36:40.

the cops are going to see if anyone is in round his house. His mum was

:36:40.:36:46.

there and she more or less doubled him, really. Once again, mum knows

:36:46.:36:53.

best. She said, well, yeah, he's doing it all the time. It confirmed

:36:53.:36:58.

the fact he had been driving. There's another problem, Dave's

:36:58.:37:04.

escaped! The driver's rear door. Suddenly he was ranting and raving

:37:04.:37:14.
:37:14.:37:15.

and charging down the corridor. Get out! Get out! Come out here.

:37:15.:37:21.

out of my mother's house! You are under arrest and you will do as you

:37:21.:37:31.
:37:31.:37:33.

are told. Stand-up. You need to calm down. Get off me! Will you

:37:33.:37:36.

come down or will I have to get a than down here and put you in the

:37:36.:37:46.
:37:46.:37:50.

A short oversight by as was that the child locks were not on and he

:37:50.:37:55.

went from the passenger side will be placed him, through the vehicle,

:37:55.:38:00.

and got out the driver's rear door. Dave has only run into a lot more

:38:00.:38:08.

trouble. Your mum said you came back from work in the car. Your dad

:38:08.:38:15.

is away at your sisters. Yeah. Shouting and screaming will only

:38:15.:38:21.

make it worse. I'm annoyed that he went into a mother's house.

:38:21.:38:26.

only person who kicked off was you. There's no need to go into my

:38:26.:38:34.

mother's house. We need to Secure the vehicle. My dad has got them.

:38:34.:38:39.

Why would your father have but keys? It is his car. It is my

:38:39.:38:45.

father's car. He will tell you that. No, he won't. Dave, or his dad's

:38:45.:38:49.

car, is going to be seized unless Dad, who is back in another car,

:38:49.:38:52.

can convince the cops they shouldn't take it. It proves beyond

:38:52.:38:55.

reasonable doubt his father was not driving the car. He was driving the

:38:55.:39:03.

car. I know where you're coming from. That is my car. I don't see

:39:03.:39:13.
:39:13.:39:13.

why you should take my car. Just because he has been driving it. I'm

:39:13.:39:23.

not having you take it. It's �150, we are taking it. It is going to be

:39:23.:39:27.

recovered. I'm a pensioner, mate, I can't afford to. I understand that.

:39:27.:39:32.

The man's pleading isn't washing with Daz. He doesn't want to see

:39:32.:39:36.

his son in trouble and is not going to say that he has stolen his car.

:39:36.:39:42.

He doesn't want to be stung for �150. So, I can understand why he

:39:42.:39:48.

was angry. But, equally, he shouldn't have allowed his son to

:39:48.:39:54.

drive his car. But there's softness about Daz. I feel sorry for Dad,

:39:54.:40:00.

really. Can we cancel recovery or shall we carry on with it? He's on

:40:00.:40:10.
:40:10.:40:11.

to his boss to see if the pensioner OK, that sounds good. I'm sure he

:40:11.:40:16.

will be pleased with that. I shall get on with that, thank you. At the

:40:16.:40:20.

end of the day, we are a public service and sometimes it does us no

:40:20.:40:25.

harm to yield, a little bit, sometimes, I think. Apply a bit of

:40:25.:40:32.

discretion, I think. Rather than having his dad paying 150p. If it

:40:32.:40:42.
:40:42.:40:47.

Back in Hull, PC Clare Large is patrolling with PC Nick Beale. He's

:40:47.:40:57.
:40:57.:40:58.

seen something out of the corner of his eye - trespassers. They look

:40:58.:41:03.

pretty young. The building is quite high, at least two stories. They

:41:03.:41:08.

shouldn't have been there. So we turned around and went in and on

:41:08.:41:12.

top of one of the factories, we found two or three kids on it to

:41:12.:41:18.

separate levels, on the top and on a smaller roof about 15 ft in the

:41:18.:41:28.
:41:28.:41:29.

air. A couple of their friends have been caught at ground level. Tell

:41:29.:41:35.

them all to come down. Some of them tried to hide. Is he going to come

:41:35.:41:40.

down, then? Come here. Don't just wander off. PC Large is determined

:41:40.:41:44.

to bring the young climbers back down to earth. They just seemed to

:41:44.:41:52.

take it as a big joke. What are you doing up there, then? What have you

:41:52.:42:02.
:42:02.:42:03.

just put down there? How old are Something else is up. Adam, come

:42:03.:42:13.
:42:13.:42:14.

down now, please. Yd think it is clever to get up on to a roof? Do I

:42:14.:42:20.

get an answer from you? You think because you are on somebody's Ruth,

:42:20.:42:26.

chucking things off, which you can tried to deny, if you start getting

:42:26.:42:35.

to us at this age, it will continue. Adam is still continuing to defy

:42:35.:42:43.

the cops. You have five seconds to show yourself and come down. We you

:42:43.:42:51.

not be taking any exams this year? What will happen is, I will contact

:42:51.:42:56.

your parents, tell them what you're doing and to you are on a roof

:42:56.:43:00.

instead of studying for exams which will determine your future. We have

:43:01.:43:06.

to get a helicopter to make sure he is not on that Ruth. If he is, he

:43:06.:43:12.

has to come down. We cannot leave him there. We asked the helicopter

:43:12.:43:17.

to come but unfortunately they were engaged elsewhere. We had to get

:43:17.:43:22.

the Brigade to come and help us with their long ladders. We should

:43:22.:43:26.

not drive off thinking we had got everyone off the roof and then two

:43:26.:43:30.

hours later be called back to somebody being found having fallen

:43:30.:43:35.

off when you're trying to get down. The firemen have quickly managed to

:43:35.:43:37.

erect their ladder but, unfortunately, there's a slight

:43:37.:43:44.

complication. They are not going to climb up it! With neither the power

:43:44.:43:47.

of arrest nor the training to deal with offenders, they're handing the

:43:47.:43:56.

job back to the police. I found it bizarre. They are the experts with

:43:56.:44:06.
:44:06.:44:09.

ladders and going on routes. -- roofs. It was deep. Fortunately it

:44:09.:44:17.

was not me that was going up, it was Nick. It was a solid roof.

:44:17.:44:23.

Nobody was there. I think they went down the other side - down a

:44:23.:44:28.

drainpipe. I know you are young and you do not know -- you do not know

:44:28.:44:34.

what you want to do with your life but trust me, this is not what you

:44:34.:44:41.

want to do. There are plenty of bad people out there for me to catch

:44:41.:44:46.

during bad stuff. They were just kids that should not be on there.

:44:46.:44:56.
:44:56.:44:56.

They needed educating. I think Clare educated them. Go and do

:44:56.:45:01.

something that normal kids do like play football. Go and do it then!

:45:01.:45:11.
:45:11.:45:14.

I do not know whether they learnt their lesson but hopefully they

:45:14.:45:18.

will think twice before they get onto a roof again. They never think

:45:18.:45:24.

the worst will happen but unfortunately sometimes it does. We

:45:24.:45:28.

have a fire service that refused to go up a ladder. We cannot possibly

:45:28.:45:38.
:45:38.:45:40.

Catching sight of the unexpected and knowing when something isn't

:45:40.:45:46.

quite right is what makes a good traffic cop. In east Hull, PCs Dave

:45:46.:45:49.

Stevenson and Lee Robinson have been stopped in their tracks by

:45:49.:45:59.
:45:59.:46:00.

something unusual. There was a wheel, tyre, and a load of debris.

:46:00.:46:06.

A bit of detective work is required. Lee being Lee, he likes his

:46:06.:46:09.

technical side of vehicles shall we say. He knows they should have

:46:09.:46:19.
:46:19.:46:25.

wheels! That felt warm. Before it goes cold there's a trail to follow.

:46:25.:46:32.

I noticed some groups in the floor which were obviously from that car.

:46:32.:46:39.

I cannot see that anyone will have stopped and changed it. There's

:46:39.:46:46.

every chance the car that's lost the wheel is very nearby. It was

:46:46.:46:56.
:46:56.:46:58.

easy really. Then it was a case of wait until we come across something.

:46:58.:47:08.
:47:08.:47:09.

And they have. But they've just missed whoever was in it. As the

:47:09.:47:11.

headlights shine into the distance on to the car, some bodies

:47:11.:47:21.
:47:21.:47:25.

disappeared. We have just disturbed four lads. It does have TWOC damage.

:47:25.:47:35.
:47:35.:47:38.

TWOC damage to the ignition means it's probably been stolen. No doubt

:47:38.:47:44.

had we not come round they would have been back out in the car again.

:47:44.:47:49.

They were long gone. Unfortunately the cops weren't quite quick enough

:47:49.:47:52.

to catch the thieves when they first saw them. No doubt someone's

:47:52.:48:00.

been on the lookout. They have had a good head start. Lee had his new

:48:00.:48:04.

boots on. He had his trainers would wear a specially designed for

:48:04.:48:11.

running. Her I would like to say that Dave has good eyesight. We

:48:11.:48:17.

said he had extended souls on them to make him higher. He said they

:48:17.:48:22.

were trainer boots to make him run faster. He had about 10 yards of

:48:22.:48:30.

Chase and then gave up. The road was badly damaged from where the

:48:30.:48:34.

car had driven down it. The tyre was completely gone. The car was

:48:34.:48:42.

quite badly damaged on the front nearside. There were some tools and

:48:42.:48:46.

gnats. They had been trying to change the wheel so they could

:48:46.:48:54.

carry on driving. If we leave it, they will come back for it. People

:48:54.:49:01.

will take the car and drive out somewhere, dump one, make another

:49:01.:49:07.

one, drive around, Nick another one, drive around the town, dump it and

:49:07.:49:13.

then walk the last half a mile home so it is nowhere near their house.

:49:13.:49:17.

Free transport. A recovery truck has arrived to take away what's

:49:17.:49:21.

left of the thieves' free transport. And, as luck would have it, the

:49:21.:49:26.

driver's got a hot tip about where the car may have been stolen from.

:49:26.:49:28.

Coming here, he's driven past another recovery agent's yard and

:49:28.:49:31.

noticed that the gates had been smashed and, incriminatingly, some

:49:31.:49:41.
:49:41.:49:45.

Hot tips are invaluable to the cops. Back in 2007, they had an anonymous

:49:45.:49:50.

caller to thank for a major drugs bust. He phoned in with details of

:49:50.:49:55.

a consignment being brought into Hull on the A63. An unmarked

:49:55.:50:03.

vehicle saw the subject vehicle. It monitored its progress into the

:50:03.:50:13.
:50:13.:50:16.

He called us. We have arrived as a marked team, managed to get behind

:50:16.:50:26.
:50:26.:50:28.

the vehicle and stopped it, near to Two men are in the car, one of them,

:50:28.:50:32.

the passenger, has got something to hide. As I'm looking through, he's

:50:32.:50:42.
:50:42.:50:52.

fiddling. Put your hands where I The informant was right on the

open. Do you want to wrap it up again? I would say probably about

:51:10.:51:16.

3000, 5000 Ecstasy tablets. It is illegal to possess them. I am

:51:16.:51:23.

following the stock check. They will be arrested for the 10th to

:51:23.:51:29.

supply. With 5000, you are looking at �10,000. There is no way they

:51:29.:51:39.

can say that his personal use. This stuff kills you. Many parents have

:51:39.:51:45.

had young ones who have been lost because of this stuff being taken.

:51:45.:51:51.

It is too dangerous. It is chemically made. You don't know if

:51:51.:51:57.

one will do damage, two will do damage. People who peddle their

:51:57.:52:01.

staff deserve to be behind bars. The more we can take off the

:52:01.:52:09.

streets, the better. The two men are going to be read their rights

:52:09.:52:13.

at the police station. Meanwhile, for the rest of the team, there are

:52:13.:52:20.

more inquiries to be done and speed is of the essence. Our main concern

:52:20.:52:27.

is the address of the driver and the address of the passenger.

:52:27.:52:31.

in east Hull, the cops are finding out if there was any truth in the

:52:31.:52:34.

recovery truck driver's story. They are looking for clues at

:52:34.:52:37.

Willingham's recovery yard. This yard is probably half a mile from

:52:37.:52:47.
:52:47.:52:47.

where the car was dumped. There was damage to the back of the Rover.

:52:47.:52:52.

Possibly it tried to force the gates a bit further. Bits of the

:52:52.:52:58.

car were still on the floor. yard is going to be re-secured.

:52:58.:53:01.

Mostly full of scrap, it's the last place the cops would ever have

:53:01.:53:09.

expected car thieves to strike. unfortunately they win that one.

:53:09.:53:14.

They will come. They always do. cops may not win them all but

:53:14.:53:17.

they've won big with the ecstasy dealers, and it could get better.

:53:17.:53:20.
