    DC Peter Grant and DCI Thomas Nightingale have been seconded for the day to CO11’s public order operation in Tottenham, North London, where some 40,000 people are expected to demonstrate against worsening race relations in contemporary Britain.

    The neighbourhood has a troubled history of violent rioting. The Metropolitan Police are there to maintain order. Peter thinks he can hear Mr Punch laughing.
