Zak hears a 999 call about a multiple pile up on the Hotten bypass. They all set off in the Munchbox. Faye announces that she is going into town and leaving Steve to do all the work.

Eric is bothering Steve in The Woolpack. Faye sets off walking. Zak parks up outside Lisa's pig farm just to take in the smell.
