UPDATE Sunday 25th 5.00 pm GMT
BBC report on Radio 4 News and ONline that after one week the Video fillum from the CCTV cameras on Floor 16 have been received by the Police - these are "delicate" and are being converted to digital format. Let's hope that ;
1. The Fillums haven't been accidentally damaged
2. That an adequate record of ownership for evidential purposes is available
3. The tapes haven't been accidentally over written
4. The conversion process does damage the original tape
5. The camera (s ?) was / were working correctly
One has to say the breathtaking speed of securing the murder scene, the evidence, people who may be involved or eyewitnesses is remarkable.... no chance of this one running into the sand Sarge.... Hats off to Former Metropolitan Police officer Mark Shields.
What's the betting that he gets a result in Pakistan, Jamaica, India or maybe no result at all... there's a guy in Karachi who will give you great odds he has several Indian passports K 650098 dated July 30, 1975, Mumbai. M 110522 dated November 13, 1978, Mumbai. P 537849 dated July 30, 1979, Mumbai. R 841697 dated November 26, 1981, Mumbai. V 57865 dated January 3, 1983, Mumbai. A 333602 dated June 4, 1985, Mumbai.

A UAE passport (No.-A717288) in August, 1985
