After a number of days too-ing and fro-ing with Matthews and Hoare about hen they could conduct a house visit police finally agreed to see the couple on February 24.
But, it's claimed, tipped off that the police would now be coming Matthews contacted Karl Demetrius, who was working with James Ireland.
Between them the pair agreed to help Matthews transport 'items' from his home and quickly left work, at British Aerospace in Filton.
Around 1am, the pair drove in Ireland's Fiesta to Southmead, where Matthews and Hoare were, picked them up and took them back to their home in Cotton Mill Lane.
From there Ireland and Demetrius and possibly Matthews went back to work, where they picked up a white transit van.
