Terry warns Ashley that he will call the police if Sandy does not emerge from Holdgate Farm soon. Ashley fears his reputation in the village is at stake and resorts to letting Sandy come to live with him. Back in the village, the father and son have a heart to heart. On the phone, Chas, who has clearly been told about Carl and Del, informs Carl that she has a new man. Del tries to ignore her feelings for Carl whilst she comforts him, but he drunkenly makes a pass at her. Elsewhere Dawn feels guilty about Scott’s decision to leave and not only offers to let him stay but agrees to keep Danny out of their home until he has had his tag removed.
