    What does "lot'll" stand for?

    Dear teachers

    I am reading a fiction, and there is a line reads as follows:

    "At least that lot'll shift once the body's gone," said Wardle, still looking out at the photographers.

    So what does "lot'll" stand for? Please advise.

    Regards

    Holden

    Your reading of "lot'll" is correct, Maria, but please read this extract from the forum's Posting Guidelines:
