Helping police with enquiries

Lord Levy today told the press “I have been helping police with their enquires. “ 

For me, this phrase is indelibly associated with my childhood and the soap, Crossroads, and a character called Arthur Brownlow.  Arthur was investigated by the police for something at one point and “helping  police with their enquires”.  

I asked my dad what it meant, expecting all wisdom to rest there.  

“It means he did it”, he replied.  

I guess my legal career was then inevitable. 

The last I recall of Arthur Brownlow was the look of surprise on his face as he bounced off the windscreen of the hit and run car that brought his Crossroads career to a premature end.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
