Det Supt Sandra Pullman:Hi, Jack, it's Sandra. Call me.
Gerry Standing:You all right, mate? It's Jerry. Look, I wondered if you fancied a pint some time this week. Uh, well, give us a shout if you do, eh.
Det Supt Sandra Pullman:OK, Jack, I know you're upset; I get that. But would it kill you to let us know you're all right? Jack, where are you?
