Storyline

The surprise defence witness proves to be a liability and vicar Paul, whilst encouraging Beth to address a group of bereaved parents, refuses to testify on Joe's behalf. His son Tom is happy to do so but before he can take the stand a bitter argument breaks out between the two barristers, reopening old wounds and making winning the case personal. Ellie determines to solve the Sandbrook case, establishing that Claire may have lied to protect Ashworth and that Ricky Gillespie, father of one of the victims, may not be as innocent as first thought. Her sleuthing leads her and Hardy to a sinister location. Written by don @ minifie-1
