“Then you won’t mind if I look in here then will you.’ The big policeman opened the door and looked in the bedroom. The bed was unmade and there was a cigarette burning in the ash tray.

Is this yours sir?

“Yes it is sergeant.’

“Could you explain why there are two sets of men’s clothes in this room sir?’

“I was just sorting out my washing you know, I take all my things down to the ship laundry.’

How do you account for two pairs of slippers under the bed then and both are different sizes then sir?’ Sergeant Hunter was meticulous to detail, this is why he had risen through the ranks and was tipped for a promotion to superintendent next year.

Someone bought them for me; they were too big, so I left them under the bed. I should really have thrown them out.’

The sergeant was about to open the wardrobe door when “Williamson asked if he had a search warrant.

“No, but I can get one. “ Is that your vehicle outside sir.’

 “No it is not.’

“Who may I ask, does it belong to then?’

“How would I know; someone may have left it there for all I know.’

“Well thank you for you time sir, sorry to have bothered you.’

The sergeant knew someone was in that wardrobe but without a warrant he was stuck.

He opened the front door and walked back to his car and got inside. Williamson closed the door.

Sergeant Hunter pulled away and drove up the back lane and picked up Hopkins.

“Get in quick, we have him; he’s still in the house.

“I think the two men have been doing something rather naughty.’

“They have Hopkins, Mr Williamson is a queer.’

“But he’s married sir.’

“Did you notice how undisturbed he was when I told him his wife had committed suicide.

Most men in my experience would have broken down or asked how it happened; he did neither.’

“Yes sir I did.’

“I smelled a rat then.’

“What are we going to do sir; we will drive to a safe place and wait Hopkins. “ Our little rat will bolt into his hole very soon. I will put money on it.’

They drove around the corner and waited down the street out of sight.’

Sure enough an hour later a man left Williamsons house.

Right Hopkins follow the rat to his hole would you.’

Hopkins started the car and followed the black Woolsey at a safe distance so he would not be seen.

The car going over the speed limit drove to Osborne Road in Jesmond he took out the file with the red ribbon around it then went into the house.

“Got him said Hunter as the pulled in behind the Woolsey. They quickly ran to the door just before Jeffry Worthington was about to close it.

“Can we come in sir we have a few questions we’d like you to answer.’ Can you give us your name.’

Yes I’m Jeffery Worthington solicitor at law what can help you with sergeant. “Well Mr Worthington, I a arresting you on a charge of child molesting, sexual perversion with a minor, and homosexual activity with another man.’
