Richard was questioned only for a short time 30-40 minutes, without a Solicitor being present. He answered all questions but was upset and tearful during this interview- something I found out only nine months later when I requested the transcript of the Police interview.
After the interview was concluded Richard was told he was on bail and would need to return to Snow Hill Police Station in London on 23rd May 2011. We heard no more from the Police until May when they confirmed the bail date. We expected that Richard might be charged with an offence or that the Police may need more time to investigate.
