‘It’s high time you and your wordy friend got to work, I think.’

The lout pointed at a group of people gathering beside a giant pile of papers.

‘You’ve got three hours before breakfast so go and join the rest of the Rippers.’

Three hours later a box of stale sandwiches and a crate of cheap fizzy drinks was dumped beside the Rippers.

‘You’ve got ten minutes before the next fleet of lorries arrive,’ sneered the lout.

‘Bon bleedin’ appetit.’
