GRAHAM CAPES (KATE) (26), Sworn:

EXAMINED BY MR. BONOMY: I am still an acting Detective Constable with Central Police.  I have been a police officer for five and a half years.

Now, I think that one of the items which you at one stage handled in the course of this Inquiry was an audio cassette tape recording of a telephone call? - Yes.

And that was given to you by a sergeant in the course of the investigation? - Yes.

Now, what did that audio recording relate to? - I was told by the sergeant that it related to a treble 9 call received at the control room -- by Mr. Taylor.

That is a call from Mr. Taylor? - Yes.

So that was actually a recording made which the police do have of the call Mr. Taylor made to the police on the 999 Emergency Service system? - That is what I was informed, yes.

The other matter I want to ask you about is some research you did into video tape recordings that show the movement of people in streets and roads around Stirling? - Yes.

Now, what work did you do on that? - We were instructed to view certain video tapes held at the CCTV Video Room at Stirling Police Office, in an attempt to try to trace the movements of individuals.

Were you looking in part of that exercise for the movements of a white van? - Yes.

Registration number M394 KBO? - Yes.

Now, in the video recordings that you have observed for the morning of the 13th March are you able to say something about the movements of what looked like that van? - Yes.

What can you tell us? - I believe it was at 9.12, one of the cameras showed a white van fitting the description of that vehicle approaching the Boroughmuir roundabout from Boroughmuir Road.

If that is right and the vehicle was travelling at average speed towards Dunblane how long would it take to get to Dunblane? - I am not sure myself.  I know a timed run was made.

Do you know what time was taken on the timed run? - I am sorry, I don't know.

Just roughly from your own experience, what time would you expect that journey to take? - I would say from there, perhaps about 15 minutes.

And can I take it that from the road that the van was seen on it could in fact get on to the road to Dunblane? - Yes, that is correct.

No cross-examination

We know that the above victims were killed by Thomas Hamilton, but, although we may not care, we do not know for sure who killed Thomas Hamilton, and why that person was carrying a revolver at the time!
