A piece of metal, believed to have been broken off from the lock-ups door and used to break the wall, was subsequently found by the Police.Williams believes that there should have been more ranks present at the stationwhen such exercises are being carried out.“The escape would have occurred because of poor supervision; there should have been more ranks present.
