Storyline

Operation Good Guys has run out of money - they can't even afford electricity any longer, although civilian accountant Roy Leyton has managed to obtain a supply of candles. They do, however, have a special witness, who is prepared to go on live television "and blow the top off the McCarthy empire". To keep his identity secret, the team arrange for the witness, played by real-life reformed gangster Frankie Fraser, to be moved a safe house. They do this covertly by putting a blanket over his head, and escorting him into a white van marked "police", surrounded by armed officers. Due to the cut-backs, they can't afford a proper safe house, but Kim volunteers to put him up in her own house, and thoughtfully puts a welcome banner over the front door. Told to save money wherever possible, Roy has all the officers' telephones removed, installs a pay phone, and sells all the computers and the armed response unit's guns. Written by Dave Brown
