Review

This series paints a vivid picture of organised crime groups operating on an alarming scale in parts of Manchester. You have to marvel at the grit of the officers in Greater Manchester Police’s major incident team as they take on criminals whose ruthless methods – shootings, stabbings, kidnappings – inevitably leave the police playing catch-up. 

Tonight’s episode features a gang murder that unfolds on a summer afternoon in a residential street, as a masked man opens fire on the occupants of a vehicle delivering drugs to a crack house. The police team gather evidence from CCTV and phone records to uncover a widespread conspiracy.
