Synopsis[edit]

PC Tony 'Yorkie' Smith is seen working at the front desk, confronted by a mass of civilians with a variety of complaints. He enters the waiting room to allow the next person in, and in doing so finds a single bag sitting below the counter. He alerts Duty Inspector Christine Frazer and Chief Inspector of Community Liaison Derek Conway, who has bomb disposal informed and the station cleared. Once bomb disposal officers arrive, Desk Sergeant Bob Cryer, and Chief Inspector Derek Conway reenter the building to ascertain if the building is safe. Moments before reaching the waiting room, the bomb detonates, blinding and setting alight the bomb disposal officer. No officers were hurt in the explosion.
