The Longest Night - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lennox Gilbey opens a can of beer in the supermarket, you can see that he has a long packet of spaghetti inside his jacket. He doesn't take it off the shelf until a few shots later. (00:06:00)

The Longest Night - S5-E3

Plot hole: The Trotter's are taken to the office while the supermarket is still open, the office containing the safe. Tender pickups in supermarkets are done throughout the day but how did the cash from the tills at closing reach the safe? It is unlikely that a supermarket would leave large amounts of cash in tills and counter caches. The Trotters were actually in the office as the store closed, as well as Lennox. The safe is far too small. A safe in a large supermarket would contain large bags of change and would have an inner safe for cash bricks. Also, how is it that no other member of staff noticed the situation in the office - such as maybe a member of staff involved in cashing-up tills needing to gain access to the safe? (I work in a supermarket as a Duty Manager).
