@wlbts you asked a few days ago if the footage you grabbed was old footage and can say for sure that the black minibus this woman is in was only launched in 2012 (Ford Transit Custom Minibus) so I guess not.



I wouldn't be so sure of the woman being JT, but the similarities are there for sure.

From Vogue article May 2013

http://www.vogue.co.uk/news/2013/04/04/may-2013-vogue-true-crime

"Another grey day, this time in central London, and the aftershocks of the Met's corruption scandals and Operations Weeting and Elveden are still rippling the walls of the meeting room at Scotland Yard, where I find DCI Nicola Wall. Wall has served 25 years at the Met, eight as a DCI, and heads up the Murder Investigation Team in west London. She's also a trained hostage and crisis negotiator. Married two years ago, her husband does contract work in the Middle East and she sees him sporadically. "We don't have children," she says briskly. "I've got the greatest respect for women who balance both - because that's fantastic - but I don't have to. And I've got a house in Putney, and I have a really nice life."

For Wall, there is no typical murder. No two jobs are the same. "We could end up with the Tia Sharp jobs of this world," she says of the 12-year-old whose body was discovered at her grandmother's house last August. "And then there are jobs that are equally as difficult as those, but that just somehow don't get that media spark." She usually has about six or seven live cases at any one time, and prides herself on her investigative speed; she is only partially joking when she attributes her low media profile to the fact "we solve cases so quickly nobody gets involved…"

A diminutive peroxide blonde, with fine cheekbones and a faint Derbyshire accent, she cuts an unusual figure. "I'm a bit different," she admits. "The jury nearly fell over last time I was in the box!" She's glad that the current crop of TV detectives are not "as mumsy" as their forebears and has a small fondness for Saga Noren "because she's quite feminine, very glamorous, very pretty and very capable, too."

As plainclothes officers, the detectives are united in their determination to look good. Wall especially enjoys playing with her femininity, if only to shake up the stuffier factions of the Met that still exist. "I usually wear a heel, and I always paint my nails," she says with a toss of her well-groomed head. "They usually brighten a day."

"It's a pitiable truth that some stories don't have happy endings. Or resolution. How is it possible to protect oneself from scenes such as these? Surely everyone has to become a hard-nosed cop in the end?
Wall answers it best. "I don't think you harden to anything like that. Not at all," she explains. "After every case, you have to self-reflect. I always think about the person that's lost their life, because that's really who we work for, somebody who's been killed. They haven't got a voice any more. It's dreadful and you do get upset. And that doesn't diminish with time." But you keep doing it: "Because you're doing something good. Because it is commitment. Everything you've got, and every skill you've got, and everything you can muster to do is a very good thing to do. And when we get people, justice is done, but we can't bring the person back."

Well it can't be anywhere near conclusion, as I would have thought Redwood would have wanted to stay.


Strange wording from Jerry Lawton here, he says 'quits' and then retire. Perhaps he was just replaced and decided to go? Just guessing of course.

Noticed that she heads a Murder Squad ...

And will no doubt, have been properly briefed before taking over.

Yes - she is - apparently she has peroxide blonde hair...

if we need to tell her anything  - a reminder of email address: Operation.Grange@met.police.uk

She was a DI back in 2011 of the MPS Homicide and Serious Crime Command - she says all the right things!

Investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wall, of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, said: "This case has taken more than five years to come to court owing to the efforts of those involved who sought to deny Sumon and his family justice.

"Today they have not succeeded and our thoughts are with Sumon's family."

Actually the more you think about it - the better it seems that there is a change in who leads Op Grange. Andy was brought in to lead the review into the abduction of Madeleine.

Now it is an investigation of murder (according to Sir Bernard) then maybe the attributes of the leader need to reflect that.

She must surely be going to sit in on the interviews next week to be brought up to speed,unless she has been handed the case files by Redwood at an earlier date,I mean she is unlikely to have just been given the task.Not sure what to make of it,not that it matters,but if it was close to be finalised Redwood would have wanted to stay surely.No patsy,no conclusion?

Think you could be right there,Redwood has got as far has he can in the investigation/review,this is from the Met.

Met Police Press release:  DCI Andy Redwood retiring from MPS   05-Dec-2014 12:31  Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood is retiring from the MPS in December 2014. 

DCI Redwood was the lead officer of Op Grange, the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

DCI Nicola Wall from the Homicide and Major Crime Command will take over on Monday 22 December and lead the dedicated team of detectives currently working on this case. 

A comprehensive handover is ongoing, and the family and other interested parties have been informed. 
The team is travelling to Portugal on Monday 8 December to carry out further enquiries, and DCI Wall will meet with the Portuguese authorities later in the week.  DCI Redwood said: “After careful consideration and a full and rewarding career in the Met the time is right for me to move on. 

"The past three and a half years leading Operation Grange has been an extraordinary privilege, and I leave the investigation in the very capable hands of my experienced colleague Nicola." wrote:

I too think this can be far from over, but perhaps it's the beginning of the final long chapter.

Redwood has completed his remit - investigated the case as if the abduction occurred in the UK. He has now removed enough onion layers to be able to conclude no abduction occurred,  and what's more, the myriad of periphery patsi suspects have now been eliminated.

All that remains is the final investigation of her death, which brings us full circle to the PJ's conclusions, and finding sufficient evidence to nail the perpetrators.  Enter DCI Nicola Wall from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, a specialist in that area.

Is her remit to find the true perpetrators?  The next few months will be conclusive,  I believe. All the above is just my take on it.

ETA Helenmeg and caricature - you got there before me! Very Happy

I think this is very encouraging.    As you suggest Dee Coy, Redwood has completed his remit and this seems to be the conclusion that remit has come to.

Now on to the next stage, the Homicide and Major Crime section, no messing.

The comments below from Nicola Wall are exactly what we need to hear after seven long years.     IMO of course.







I always think about the person that's lost their life, because that's really who we work for, somebody who's been killed. They haven't got a voice any more. It's dreadful and you do get upset. And that doesn't diminish with time." But you keep doing it: "Because you're doing something good. Because it is commitment.

I so agree Mimi, only I didn't want to say it in case it was considered 'sexist'.         Cool Very Happy
