The watch are summoned to an incident in which raiders have cemented a wealthy young city trader into the bowl of his lavatory. Unable to release him, the firemen can hardly contain themselves as he is carried, still cemented to the lavatory bowl, to a waiting ambulance. The next shout is to a major road crash caused by a lonely, depressed old lady deliberately walking out into the busy main road in front of a lorry. New recruit Kevin panics when he finds a child trapped in the back of one of the crushed cars and Sicknote really is sick on discovering, amidst all the carnage and confusion, the old lady's severed head. On the domestic front, tongues are wagging over Bayleafs relationship with Josie and hard-up Tony confesses to wife Dorothy that he took the £1,200 but found himself unable to steal it and hid it in the store room. Dorothy confides in Josie who helps Tony to secretly return the cash to Tates office. The matter is closed.
