KNOCK AT DOOR
Can we talk?
The day before Iwan Thomas died, he called you.
You didn't inform DS Owens.
No, I didn't.
What did Iwan say when he called you?
He asked me how my head was.
And that's it?
It was a short conversation.
And that's why you went looking for him the night he died?
Because there was more to say?
I wanted to say that enough was enough.
And you didn't get the chance?
Do you think Iwan Thomas killed himself?
The last call Iwan made...
..was to Chief Superintendent Prosser.
Are you surprised?
-Did Iwan ever discuss his relationship with Prosser?
Listen...if you've got any questions about Prosser...
..then you really should be asking him, shouldn't you?
He was a regular. He came here most mornings.
This morning, can you tell me what happened, what you remember?
He stopped, got the petrol and...
..a man walked up to him...
..and he just...he just shot him.
The attacker, do you remember what car he was driving?
Um...sort of reddish.
The man with the gun, did you see his face?
FAINT POLICE RADIO
The victim's pick-up is registered to a Liam Hughes.
Worked in the rubbish depot. We're still trying to trace the family.
Why would anyone want to hurt Liam?
He wouldn't harm anyone, he was always...
He was always joking around, making people laugh.
Do you know if Liam had any family living in the area?
Um...I think most of his family come from over Welshpool way.
Was Liam in any kind of trouble recently?
A couple of weeks ago, he got into a bit of a scrap.
-Nothing much, though, it wasn't Liam's fault.
-Whose fault was it?
Liam made a crack about his wife. A joke.
Llew lost it.
Threw a brick through the windscreen of Liam's truck.
I had to sack him. Llew, that is.
-I had no choice.
-Do you know where he lives?
'I've just spoken with the DVLA.'
They've confirmed that Llew Morris is the owner of a red Nissan Micra.
But there's something else.
Llew's wife Bethan issued a restraining order against him.
-Five weeks ago, sir. I'll send you the address now.
Can we come in?
Five weeks ago you set up a restraining order against Llew.
-Could you tell us about that?
It is important, Bethan. Please.
-Was Llew ever violent towards you?
He's not a violent man.
He just couldn't accept that our marriage was over.
Llew ran a printing business.
He put everything we had into it.
When the business went bust, Llew found it hard.
He thought he'd failed us.
And it all got on top of him.
He became angry.
The debts kept getting bigger.
His mother got ill, in and out of hospital.
-Llew just couldn't cope.
-Why the restraining order?
After we split up...
..Llew kept pestering me at the hospital where I work.
Coming around to the house all hours...
I didn't want Bryn seeing his father like that.
-Bryn, your son?
-Is this him?
-Where is he now, at school?
-Yeah. Ysgol Gwel y Mor, down the road.
Did Llew ever mention a Liam Hughes to you?
Do you have any idea where Llew is right now?
If he's not at home, he might be at his Mam and Dad's.
He goes there to check on his mother.
SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC BUILDS
Call an ambulance now. He's still alive.
POLICE BARK INDISTINCT ORDERS
He's not coming back.
We've just got a call from Gwel y Mor Primary School.
Bryn Morris, Llew's son, he's gone missing from the yard
during the lunch break. The other kids said he left with his father.
-We know how hard this must be for you, Bethan,
but we need your help.
We need to find out everything we can about Llew...
friends, places that he liked to go.
You have to find him.
But we need your help.
I want my son back.
I want him home.
I want him home now.
What do we know? What can you tell me about him?
A failed marriage, failed business, debts piled high
and a terminally ill mother he doted on.
Llew is a man in free fall, sir.
This morning he drove to his parents' house,
early, before anybody was awake,
and there he suffocated his mother and then shot his father.
Then he went looking for Liam Hughes
and when he found him, he shot him dead, too.
We know that he's taken his son and we have to work on the assumption that he intends to harm him.
We've got roadblocks on all major roads in and out of the Aberystwyth area.
-So far there's no sign of Llew's car.
-Where are we on ballistics?
The report confirms that the gun involved is similar to a shotgun
licensed to Llew's father.
He was a gamekeeper on the Cefneithin estate.
The shotgun was not found at the property.
We're still waiting to see if the shotgun cartridges retrieved from the crime scene are a match.
Sir, news from the hospital.
The father, he's been rushed into emergency surgery.
It's touch-and-go. Claire's brother's on his way there now.
KNOCK ON DOOR
I can't believe this is happening.
I knew Llew had problems, but to do this.
When did you last see your brother?
We argued, OK?
-What difference does that make now?
Shouldn't you be out there looking for Bryn?
Why was there so much bad blood between Llew and his father?
Dad wanted us to be strong.
He knew that life wouldn't give you anything.
That you had to fight for it.
And he was a real fighter.
He is a fighter.
What about Llew? Was he a fighter too?
When Llew's business went bust...
..he got into trouble.
Debts, bank loans and stuff.
So he asked the old man for some money.
He said, "You made this mess, you sort it out."
Do you have any idea where he might be?
-Where he would have taken Bryn?
KNOCK ON DOOR
I've spoken to the neighbour.
She said she was woken up by a loud bang this morning.
When she went over to the window,
she confirms it was Llew's car that she saw.
-What time was this?
-Around seven, seven-thirty.
She thought there might have been something up with his mother
-and when she went back an hour later, the car was gone.
It's good to have you back in the team.
Any idea where this was taken?
He could be in there with the boy.
This might be our only chance.
Call it in.
Have you seen this boy?
-The waitress remembers the father carrying a bag or a rucksack.
-With the gun inside.
-They can't have gone far. Not on foot.
-That's what I'm afraid of.
Llew on foot puts other lives in danger.
We had them, Mared. They were here.
We let them go.
Sir, the father, he didn't make it.
He died in theatre.
We've got an armed man on the run with a child. Three people are dead.
We've set up a roadblock here, there and over there.
We've established a 15-mile perimeter and uniform have begun
their metre-by-metre search of the surrounding woodland.
Residents in the immediate area need to be warned.
Search dogs and air support vehicles are being made available to us.
We have three victims, two crime scenes, two active investigations.
We can't take anything for granted. We need to treat this investigation
just like any other. Build the case.
And I want to be informed of all developments at all times.
-What happened? How did we lose them?
-I made a judgment call, sir.
I got it wrong.
What are you doing here, Dafydd?
Have you found them? Have you found Llew and Bryn?
I was only trying to help.
I knew what Bethan was going through with Llew.
She was struggling.
I tried talking to him, but Bethan and Bryn were his world.
He wouldn't accept it.
She called me one night...
and I went over.
Bethan, she was in pieces.
I don't know how it happened.
It only happened once.
Llew found out. He was watching the house.
Saw me arrive.
Is that what you were arguing about?
I did this to him.
My own brother.
Once this gets out, we're going to be overwhelmed with calls.
The longer it takes to find them, the more danger the boy is in.
I'm well aware of the danger, but we have no choice. We have to give the press something.
Thank you for coming at short notice. I won't keep you long.
At 08.42 this morning, officers were called to a shooting
at Ifor Evans' Agricultural Suppliers,
where a member of the public was fatally wounded.
This is our red zone.
We're still continuing with door-to-door enquiries.
Also, the farms inside the red zone have been checked
and there have been no sightings.
We have managed to contact most of the residents in the outer corden,
warning them about Llew and Bryn,
advising them to be vigilant at all times,
but there are a number of unanswered properties on this list.
-We're trying to arrange call-backs.
-It's a vast area, sir.
They're moving as fast as they can.
HELICOPTER ROTOR FADES
-'Am I disturbing you?'
No. No, no, no.
I saw the news.
I was worried about you.
Will I see you tonight?
I'd like to see you.
I'd like to see you, too.
I've, erm... I've got to go.
I'm DCI Mathias. Sorry to disturb you.
I'm looking for a young boy who's missing
and a man in his 30s.
Have you seen him?
-No, no, I'm sorry.
-Are you sure?
Yes, yes, I'm sure.
Well, if you do hear or see anything suspicious or indeed see this man,
don't try and approach him, just, erm...
call me, immediately.
Are you sure you're OK?
Yes, I'm sure. Thank you.
Well, thanks for your time.
Get out of the car, now!
Get in there!
On your knees. On your knees!
Why are you here?! You could have gone. You had the chance.
You've ruined everything!
-Don't do it, Llew. Not in front of Bryn.
-Don't talk about my son.
-Don't even mention his name.
They know where I am, Llew.
And they're going to find me.
So let them go.
-It's got nothing to do with them.
-Shut up! Don't say another word.
Take off your tie.
Take off your tie - now!
Now everyone be quiet.
If he'd have given you the money, none of this would have happened.
He might still be alive. Your mother might still be alive too.
It all went wrong.
Just think about Bryn!
