Daz Spencer has been a desperate man since he made the mistake of drink-driving and accidentally hit someone with his car.

After fleeing the scene of the crime, Daz has secretly been plotting to flee from the village…and the country!

With his bags barely packed, Daz boards a minibus headed for the airport. But his great escape takes a U-turn when his ex, Kerry Wyatt comes over all faint-headed and collapses by the roadside…

Spotting Kerry lying motionless by the road, Daz orders the minibus to stop and he joins his worried brother Dan and teenage daughter Amelia in taking Kerry to the hospital. But what’s wrong with Kerry?

Leaving Kerry in Dan’s care, Daz decides he’s still going ahead with his escape plans. However, his odd behaviour doesn’t go unnoticed by Amelia who demands to know what he is up to! Will Daz have to come clean about his involvement in the hit and run?

Elsewhere, with Ross Barton now gone from the village, his brother Pete and partner Rhona Goskirk are in for a surprise when they discover Ross’s former prostitute friend Dawn back and sleeping rough in the Community Garden shed.

What kind of trouble has Dawn got herself into this time?
