    • Donald Bevan: Saturday afternoon, acting on a tipoff, Traffic arrested Fred Donaldson for drink driving outside the Wolsey Park Golf Club. After failing a subsequent blood test, Donaldson asked that his 'good friend' ex-detective Gerry Standing be informed so that he could, quote, sort it out. This morning, Donaldson was charged with a series of rapes that took place in the Hammersmith area twelve years ago. The arresting officer was a D.I. Terry Cassidy of the serious crime group, formerly of the pedophile unit.
