The unnamed Nightwatchman looked after the closed Johnson's factory in Hartlepool. Mike Baldwin had pushed his staff at Baldwin's Casuals to work through their lunch to complete an order for the firm and delivery man Bernard Clough had driven it over to their premises. Speaking to Bernard through the closed gates, the Nightwatchman told him the closure had taken place the end of the previous week with no one being given any warning.
