For Jo C. The goods were found in the bedroom next door to the one occupied by my wife and I. This room had very recently begun to be occupied by the offending son. A further search of the flat was carried out whilst we were in custody. I do not know the result of this search. My wife is equally adamant that she had no "guilty knowledge" and I know her well enough to be absolutely sure that her innocence is equal to mine.
For Jo C. Your reply is satisfactory, thank you, XXXXX XXXXX in the last sentence (just before your "can I clarify anything for you") you say "they". I expect you mean "you" (knew about them). I have no further queries>
