Episode 2 - Moped Crime
 
In the second episode, Jeremy investigates a massive rise in moped muggings - 2017 saw a huge spike in this type of crime and the Metropolitan Police are fighting back with their controversial, tactical contact operations. Jeremy goes out on a patrol to see why they say this approach is necessary, meets the victims of attacks to understand the impact on their lives - and gets caught in the middle when he tries to confront youths involved in it.
