I've just watched on you tube and it's a brilliant episode. I can't work out why, but for some reason I missed it on all the reruns on itv too so it's the first time since 75 that I've seen it. I love the summer heat of 1975 which comes across in the location filming. Like the Mini too which Jack got to use, bit of a change from NHK!
One of the villains was the chef from series 2 of Fawlty Towers.

Watched this tonight (plus Golden Fleece) - coincidentally both feature members of the squad being accused of being corrupt, Jack in this episode and Haskins in Golden Fleece
Anyone know how frequent these falsified allegations of corruption were at the time? I guess, given that there was a lot of evidence of Met corrruption during the 70s, that any allegation would have been taken very seriously
Trap is of my favourite episodes in series two - really good use of locations (not least the fires on the wasteland scene with Regan and Carter), and well directed too.
Despite a couple of the dimmest villains you'll ever encounter the whole thing is really satisfying
