You say at paragraph 22, page 00766, that you have occasionally been given prior warning of a raid, although not in your current role. You say:

"I cannot recall the particular circumstances and feel confident that I did not, in fact, attend raids about which I was forewarned since they were not regarded as sufficiently newsworthy, or another reporter was sent."

Can you recall the particular circumstances in which you were given that prior warning? Was this a secret tip-off or was this more official?
