Rob tries to talk to Barry

Barry Chapman turns up at the police station having suffered another beating and agrees to be seen by Jimmi. Just as Barry starts to open up to Rob, DS Sean Richmond appears and Barry runs off. DS Richmond tells Rob he’s on dangerous ground given that he’s already been told to keep his nose out. Finally, DS Richmond realises Rob won’t let it go, so shows him a file of confidential information which shocks him.

When Rob gets home he’s amused to find Imogen – who was winding him up with her back chat earlier – has made a huge effort all day baking and getting ready for a surprise for Rob. But this stops him from opening up to Karen about what he found out from DS Richmond.

Also, Jimmi gets a tie in the mail from a fan and Michelle helps an attention-seeking asthmatic teen realise the damage her behaviour is doing to her family.
