When the crown jewels are returned to the police station. The Police station has a sign saying "City of London Police", on the news report it says "The crown jewels were returned to a police station in north London". However the 'City of London' police only patrol within 'the square mile' in the centre of Greater London. North London would refer to northern Greater London, which is covered by the Metropolitan Police. Even if the City of London police station was in the north of the square mile, no-one would refer to it as north London as it's such a small area. See more
Ah, the Heckler and Koch G-36. Quite deadly in the right hands.
During the end credits, we see Lorna (who was ejected from English's car in the last scene) landing in a swimming pool. Sitting beside the swimming pool is the strange-looking man that English described to his boss early in the film. See more
