Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 6
AIRED:
Mel's is accused of 'going native' - it's isolating her from the rest of the scale. In the locker room Mike warns her 'It's just a job at the end of the day - don't get so involved.' She's sent to deal with the neighbours from Hell, but as with most such disputes there's little she can do beyond warning the rowdy Walsh family against whom the complaint has been made. Later, however, Giffin informs her he's had an anonymous call about twenty year old Trevor Walsh, who's allegedly involved with fourteen year old Becky Jennings. Trevor is a Schedule One Sex Offender so he orders Mel to 'sort it out'. A check on Becky reassures Mel that there's no immediate danger and Darrell confirms this. He knows Trevor, and believes he's trying to make good. Besides, if the police arrested everyone having under-age sex 'they'd have to bring in the army'. Nevertheless, Giffen orders her to cover her back and get a Social Worker involved. Colin's first day as the Schools Liaison Officer goes well. He enjoys himself and even picks up some information about a kid whose father grows weed. But when he calls round he discovers Jason's dad has MS, and uses dope for medicinal purposes. He drops his investigation. Old hand Roy receives his long service medal much to the delight of wife Ellen. At the ceremony, Giffen and Roy acknowledge their similarities - Giffen: 'You're right, it's all bollocks really.' Giffen also gets pally with Maggie. He obviously hasn't heard the rumours - not that Colin believes them: 'She's not a lesser - she's too ladylike.' Newly appointed Amanda Kennett, however, is failing to ingratiate herself with the scale. Her arrogant enthusiasm is too much for most and even the people of Stanton are subject to levels of zero tolerance never before seen. However, when she sprays CS gas into the face of a disabled driver, Newland is quick to jump to her defence. 'It's harder for graduates getting their hands dirty - ivory tower and all that. It was hard for me, very hard.' Meanwhile Mel has to help a social worker remove Becky from what he perceives to be a dangerous situation. When they track her down, she's with Trevor and Darrell. The situation explodes and as Becky's led away and Trevor restrained, Mel is forced to face up to the difficulties of mixing her personal and professional lives.moreless
