Good Evening

Anything recorded without your consent and knowledge it cannot be used in court.

The police may have spoken to them as part of the investigation. But the recordings cannot be used.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon
