    A MAGISTRATE IN A CLOSELY-GUARDED LONDON COURT TODAY (FRIDAY) REMANDED 27-YEAR-OLD JOHN DUDDY IN CUSTODY FOR A WEEK CHARGED WITH THE MURDER OF THREE UNARMED DETECTIVES IN LONDON LAST FRIDAY. A SECOND MAN, JOHN LEONARD WITNEY, 36, IS ALREADY IN A LONDON JAIL FACING SIMILAR CHARGES.

    AT THE SAME TIME 500 POLICEMEN -- SOME ARMED AND SOME EQUIPPED WITH TEAR GAS -- WERE COMBING SPRAWLING EPPING FOREST EAST OF LONDON FOR A THIRD MAN THEY ARE SEEKING IN CONNECTION WITH THE SHOOTING. DETECTIVES HEADING THE MURDER PROBE HAVE ALLEGED THAT 30-YEAR-OLD SCAR-FACED HARRY ROBERTS MIGHT BE CARRYING THREE GUNS, ONE OF THEM POSSIBLY A RIFLE.

    DUDDY, A DRIVER, WAS FLOWN TO LONDON UNDER ESCORT FROM SCOTLAND ON WEDNESDAY AFTER BEING ARRESTED IN A GLASGOW TENEMENT BUILDING. HE WAS IN COURT TODAY FOR LESS THAN TWO DETECTIVES. HE SHOOK HIS HEAD WHEN THE MAGISTRATE ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ANYTHING TO SAY.
