Salem points over towards the Land Rover, "Dr.Kirby, we've managed to capture a Sea Devil and restrained it in the backseat of the car. HQ says we should bring it back to base so we may examine it." Salem thinks to himself for a moment and looks over in the direction of the underwater cave, "Did you know anything about that cave over there Dr.Kirby?"
The other children cheered him on. His name voiced in a steadily rising pace, urging him to do it. “Am I really doing this?”, the young boy thought and struck his victim with a rock.

Valerie looks down to the sand trying to remember the layout of the village. Finally she calls out "When we went into the manor I'm sure there was a carriage house on the drive. I remember hiding behind behind it when Elliott and I saw the gardener. I had almost forgotten about him. Anyway, I wonder if your car was being held there Dr Kirby?"

"That's likely where they've hidden it," said Dr. Kirby as she made her way over to the Land Rover. "I wouldn't want to risk going back there to look for it, though. I did see the cave entrance from the beach around here, but I never ventured inside." She looked into the back of the vehicle and screamed in terror when she saw the creature. Trembling, she gripped the door handle and shivered for a minute until she calmed down. "Actually, that one's not as bad as Bertie Lake. There are still enough bits of him that you can tell he was once human, and that makes it worse."

When Dr. Kirby screams, Elliot will come out to make sure she is ok. "Everyone ok here?".

Salem looks around to clue in, only to mindlessly blind himself when he stared at the sun and rubs his eyes profusely.

Raymond was inside the shack, keeping an eye on Horsham.

Spoiler:
Elliot and Valerie happened to glance to the north. Off in the distance, three men were walking in their direction, all of them wearing constables' uniforms. Dr. Kirby noticed them too.

Valerie looks Northward and watches as the figures come closer. Before they get too close she says to Elliott; "Elliott, we may need to make a decision now - have you seen these three supposed policemen heading our way? They may or may not be friendlies, but I think it would be better to bolt if needed, don't you agree dear boy? Salem, I'd suggest we leave and leave now. Dr Kirby, if you would be so good as to get in the car please, we may have to leave in a hurry."

Elliot sizes the constables walking towards them. Then to the ones inside, "We got company. Doctor Kirby do you know if the police are in with these..." he stops at a loss of words. "Whatever they are. What if I go talk to them see what they want? I'm not sure running from the police is the right thing to do. Maybe they can be allies."

"It wouldn't surprise me if they're in on it," said Dr. Kirby. "It's hard to imagine how all this could be going on without their knowledge. Be careful." She got into the Land Rover.

Elliot discreetly hands his pistol over to Val. "Just in case. Get the truck started. I'll go see what our friends want. Your job is to get Dr. Kirby out of here if things go bad."
.
Elliot walks up the beach till he is about 20 feet from the 3 men. He looks for anything out of place. Do they have the right uniforms, badges, etc... Are they carrying any firearms? Do they have gills? If anything looks fishy he is going to bolt back down the beach.
Spoiler:
just in case target = 60:
BenTheRat rolled 1d100:

.
If everything looks good and they don't seem aggressive, "Afternoon constables, can I help you?"

Raymond stuck his head out of the shack. "I don't think we can bring ths guy outside with company on the way," he said quietly to Salem and Valerie Soames as Elliot headed north up the beach.

Spoiler:
Elliot walked closer to the constables, who did not seem to be paying him any particular attention. Their uniforms and badges looked normal, and they did not seem to have firearms, though each of them had a baton on his belt. The one in the middle had sergeant's stripes on his sleeves. When he got to within about twenty feet, Elliot could see that all three of them had big fishy eyes and gills.

Spoiler:
Elliot, please roll Sanity. Sanity loss is 0/1d4. You may then act freely, but you should roll Idea before you do so.

Valerie gets into the land rover and starts it up. She casts her eyes about and looks for the easiest route off the beach, hopefully being able to take as many of the 'group' as possible. At least Dr Kirby is in the car.

"Are you alright dear ... we'll do our best to ensure your safety."

"I am now, thanks to you and Elliot," said Dr. Kirby. "If you hadn't gotten me out of there..." She shivered.

Valerie Soames could see that the only way to get the Land Rover off the beach was to drive north, past the police. The beach ended here at the cliff base, and there was no way the vehicle could scale the sheer heights or sail out to sea, which were the only other apparent ways off the beach.

Spoiler:
I hope I'm not too late in elaborating something quite... ridiculous. Hear me out guys, even though there's 3 cops that seems to suggest they're ready for action, what if we tried tricking them? Instead of direct confrontation, we can trick the police into thinking that Raymond is holding Horsham as hostage, and waving his gun around like a psycho. He'll shoot anybody that tries to go inside, we simply don't know why, all we know is that he's crazy and the people outside are trying to reason him. If this somehow works, we could try whacking them in the back of the heads. My two cents worth :p
The other children cheered him on. His name voiced in a steadily rising pace, urging him to do it. “Am I really doing this?”, the young boy thought and struck his victim with a rock.

"Thank you, sir," said the sergeant. "We'll deal with that just as soon as we've resolved the situation here. Please stay back." He led the other two constables past Ellliot, in the direction of Horsham's shack.

Spoiler:
Elliot was sure these were actual constables, but they carried the taint of Dunwich and were no doubt corrupted and on Lake's payroll. They also seemed to know that something was going on at Horsham's. Could Salem or Raymond have made a phone call to UNIT from the shack? If so, the local operator could easily have eavesdropped on the conversation and then reported it, which would explain how the police would know.

"Absolutely sirs." Elliot says. After they pass and their backs are to me, he will flash a sign to Val that things are not good, and to be prepared to fight.

Noting Elliott's gesturing as the disgustingly deformed policemen approach, I am now torn between fight or flight. Her head says let's get the package out of here, but her heart, her gut instinct is that she should stay and help her fellow agents. "If you can drive I want you to get out and drive away from this hell-hole for all you are worth Doctor - I cannot leave my colleagues behind in this situation - it's just not the British way now is it? You need to get off the beach to the North, which unfortunately will take you past those revolting policemen."

"You can drive Dr Kirby?" I ask as I watch the distorted features of the police get closer.
