You don't have to say anything but it may harm your defence if Kick your shoes off, empty your pockets and put them on the counter.
That's a lot of money to be walking around with.
Listen, let me give you one word of advice - don't trust the banks.
You might get mugged.

Twenty, forty, sixty It's all there - five hundred.
Where's the six you owe? I'll sort that out with Dushane later.
Nah, man, I need the correct money now.
I don't keep that kind of money in the house.

You're abusing me, you fucking paedo.
You best give me my money.
All right.

Oh, for fuck's sake.
Please! Mr Hill? Rhianna Parkes.

You work in the same firm as him? Yes.
That's cool.
I'd like to speak to Mr Hill alone.
I've never had a woman solicitor before.
Well, some of us come stupid and some of us come smart.
We're like you that way.
'Why have you arrested Mr Hill?' The grounds of arrest have been accepted by the custody sergeant and that's all I want to tell you at this stage.
What was your involvement in the murder of Kamale Lewis? I know nothing about it.
Not guilty of it and I wasn't involved.
Do you know Kamale Lewis? Mr Hill formally asserted his innocence, and I would like to formally place, for the record, my advice that he make no further comment during this interview.
Do you know Kamale Lewis? No comment.
Did you ever meet Kamale Lewis? No comment.
Dris Wright.
Do you know that name? No comment.

There is no gangs.
What is there? What there is everywhere else - friends, family.
Are you the leader of the Summerhouse family? "Summerhouse family"? You lot watch too much American movies, man.
Have you ever sold drugs or asked others to sell drugs for you? You've already put this question to my client, and he's given you a definitive answer.
Now move on.
'What happened?' Was it the water? The water's good, innit.
Well, something's killed them.
I tested the PH every day and it's cool.
I've even put the right amount of food in.
Can't have anything to do with the water.
The cutters are supposed to be coming Friday.
Well, that ain't going to happen.
Well, what am I supposed to do? Have you spoke to Vincent? Shit.
Here, big man.
Three on two, yeah? What are you talking about, man? Three on two.
What? Three on two.
Put your hand down, man, I can't hear what you're saying.
Try saying it normal.
Ain't got time for this shit, man.
This kid isn't serious, man.
Always putting the mic up.
Why does he fucking do that? Look at this shit, man.
How could you go out looking like that, man? Ain't you got no money? Have you got X-ray visions? Can you see through my pockets? Well judging by your threads, you got no money.
Pussy! Here you are.
All right, Dad? All right? Hello, Mr Mustafa.
- You want chips? - Yes, please.
What are you doing? Here you are.
Here you go.
Don't be late home, yeah? Yes, Dad.
Burger and chips, please.
Tell him it was a plague of locusts.
What? You know, like in the Bible.
The Egyptians All them frogs.
Why are you talking about Egyptians, bruv? Vincent ain't going to believe that.
I'm just saying, man.
Frogs are evil.
You ain't taking this serious, Ra'Nell, bruv.
This is serious.
I know it's serious.
Are you going to come tell Vincent with me? Nah, I'm not getting involved with that, man.
Do you claim benefits? What relevance does this have to your murder enquiry? I'm trying to get a picture of Mr Hill's lifestyle.
Do you claim benefits? No.
Are you in paid work? I don't know if you've noticed, but there ain't a lot of work around.
Do you own a car? No.
Do you own a flat? House? No.
You've got no assets? My clothes.
You took them.
They were nice clothes.
How come you can afford clothes like that? People buy me clothes and stuff.
Girls and that.
That's very nice.
And I want my clothes back.
Don't let me catch you walking around in my stuff, you know? When you were arrested, you were found to be in possession of £345 in cash.
Is that your money? Yeah.
How come you've got that much money? It was my birthday.
When? Thursday.
My client has given you an answer.
Now move on.
This interview is now terminated.
You're being released on police bail.
"Now move on," yeah? That's what I'm going to call you, "Now move on.
" Put them in their place, boy.
Satisfied client, that's what we like.
If you let me take you out to dinner, I'll be even more satisfied.
Thank you.
My best guess is that they'll put this to bed, unless they come up with something new.
Like what? Usual things - witness, DNA, prints.
It's not gonna happen.
I wasn't there.
Don't get complacent.
They don't like you.
They'll be keeping an eye on you.
Thank you.
Wag'wan? How'd they know to pick us up? Bruv, I don't know.
Don't worry about it, man, they ain't got nothing.
That guy that was with Kamale that night, got shot dead at some New Year's party in Brixton, so he ain't saying nothing.
There's still the girl, though, Kayla.
She saw us, she could ID us.
Yeah, but feds don't know that we grabbed Kamale from Kayla's yard.
She's so beautiful.
Ain't you, Erin? You're a beautiful little girl, aren't you? Yeah.
Yes! Cheeky bitch! You're not supposed to say that! Do you know what my name is? Neveah.
Say, "Neveah.
" Neveah! Yeah.
