|Guy Mannion||Service Record|
Mannion originally appeared as the officer in charge of Sun Hill's neighbouring station and perennial rivals, Barton Street. A youthful graduate-entry high-flier, he was in many ways the antithesis of Sun Hill's commanding officer, Chief Superintendent Brownlow. Not surprisingly, Mannion and Brownlow became bitter rivals, especially when the new post of Borough Commander came up for grabs. Brownlow was not at all pleased when Mannion was selected for the role: even though they held the same rank, and Brownlow was much more experienced, Mannion was the one in charge.
Mannion was instrumental in clearing up the fallout from the Don Beech scandal. He manipulated Brownlow into resigning, and then hastily transferred CID officers Geoff Daly and Chris Deakin, who left with Kerry Holmes, who put in for a transfer, angered that she was implicated.
Mannion himself was succeeded as Borough Commander by Jane Fitzwilliam: his fate was never explained on screen, though Tom Chandler said he was to be receiving his 'carriage clock' in Liquid City, which hints at retirement.
