Following the incident, detectives from Bedfordshire Police’s Major Crime Unit launch an attempted murder investigation. However, they face significant challenges, including a lack of witnesses and the victim’s inability to communicate as he receives treatment in the hospital. Adding to the complexity, the victim’s family lives in fear, and the police have minimal evidence to work with.

A bulky gold chain with a Tasmanian devil pendant emerges as a potential lead, offering a glimmer of hope in identifying the perpetrators and their motives. With unprecedented access to this live investigation, cameras capture every twist and turn as detectives decide to conduct a series of armed raids across Luton to apprehend potential suspects.
