When Ed is arrested he is shown in a cell. The gaoler is shown wearing Her Majesty's Prisons uniform. Later it was stated that he was released without charge; if that was the case he would have only got as far as being held in police custody, which is run by the police rather than the prison service.

Make sure you do not miss out, I know I almost did!
This film quite literally blew me away and had I listened to some of the posts off here, I possibly could of missed out!
Personally, judging by the posters who have come on here to discuss this film, I think the film has inadvertently aimed itself or been swept into the wrong market. It seems it is being judged by the people who are unfortunately incapable of grasping the brilliance of it all.
Despite being set in a similar environment, this film is not another 'Kidulthood' and tackles much more deeper questions about morality. 'Kidulthood' was aimed solely at the people it portrayed such as the teens and young adults who live in these areas. For me, 'Ill Manors' is for a more mature market and is a harrowing message that should be seen by the masses and the more privileged of us out there who need a window to peer through in order to grasp the horrors that take place right on our doorstep. It is also for the real movie lovers out there who want to be taken on a roller coaster ride and really feel the angst and despair that these true to life characters have to go through just to survive. Without question, this film will take you in from the first minute and drag you into the hurricane that is the working class of London where you have no idea how or where you will end up.
From a spectacle point of view, this film is breathtaking one minute and the so raw the next that you will feel the need to look away.
I can quite readily say that I did not expect nothing close to what I saw and I am extremely glad that I took the time to check this brilliant film out.
9/10 for me.
