Episode Summary

PC Cameron Tait dives into the Thames to rescue the two children from the sinking car. He manages to get the girl out, but the boy is missing and the girl later dies in hospital. Cameron is deeply affected, and begins to sink into a deep depression, while PC Honey Harman does her best to console him. PC Gabriel Kent's vigilante actions on the Coal Lane Estate could be his undoing when one of his supporters, Laura Bryant, decides he's crossed the line, and reports his actions to DC Rob Thatcher. As Thatcher and DC Ken Drummond follow up Laura's allegations, Gabriel's accomplice Kev is found beaten and locked in the boot of a car. Drummond sees Irene Radford, head of a ruthless crime family on the estate, and it looks as though the Radfords are running a protection racket. DS Debbie McAllister leads a raid to arrest an aggravated burglary suspect, and DS Samantha Nixon realises he fits the profile of their serial rapist. DS Phil Hunter returns to work, but makes excuses that due to his injury, he can't do much "legwork". To his chagrin, DI Neil Manson transfers him to CSU while DS De Costa is on leave. Having just been demoted to PC, Sheelagh Murphy is sensitive to accusations of racism, but PC Lance Powell accuses her of homophobia too when the pair investigate the stabbing of a man at a notorious gay beat in Canley Fields. Powell treads softly when he informs the victim's partner, who is married with children.moreless
