Yes Corrie was with friends, the ones from his base, he met up with them in So Bar.
They left So bar and went to Wetherspoons.
They left, Corrie then chatted with one of his friends opposite the side door of LP’s and then they walked together.
Corrie walked straight past the bouncer on the door with his friend right behind him.
Corrie came out for a cigarette on his own and went back in.
