Police often use this so they don’t have to dig up areas which could destroy or compromise evidence.

During the most recent episode of LoD, Kate Fleming called for the GPR to look under the floor of the gun workshop where AC-12 previously shot down two OCG members.

Thinking about the criminal gang’s past, anything could be found under there, including cash, weapons, dead bodies or maybe evidence from Gail Vella’s death.

Meanwhile, many Line of Duty fans are convinced DCS Patricia Carmichael could have something to do with the OCG herself.

But is she an evil villain, or just ambitious? Well, after she refused to let Ted Hastings question Jo Davidson about police corruption, many fans are very suspicious.

““I would prefer to confine myself to the set parameters of the anti-corruption enquiry. Let’s chivvy things along, shall we?,” she butted in during the enquiry.

Carmichael also made DC Chloe Bishop take Osborne’s picture off Ted’s pin board and put it through the shredder.

“I don’t trust Carmichael she looks dodgy,” wrote one person, while another said: “Conclusions from tonight: Carmichael is not nice and has DEFO got something to do with it.”
