Romance is on the cards for PCs Kirsty Knight and Leon Taylor when they work together on a particularly harrowing case.
The drama starts when the pair are called out to investigate a suspicious holdall discovered by a group of schoolchildren on a rubbish dump.
When Kirsty takes a closer look, she is horrified to find the body of a young woman.
Aghast, she calls out to Leon who rushes to her side.
The two cops immediately call for back up.
When the Sun Hill team arrive on the scene, the area is quickly cordoned off.
DI Neil Manson, DS Stevie Moss and crime scene examiner Eddie Olosunje get to work. Later, the dead woman is found to be a Venezuelan called Luisa Dias.
At the mortuary, Luisa’s distraught brother, Roberto, identifies his sister’s body.
As he grieves, Roberto reveals that his sister had planned to split up with her boyfriend, Dominic Fisher, the previous night and was unsure how Fisher was going to take the news…
…but she had later called him to assure her brother that everything was fine. Leon and Kirsty realise they have to find Fisher fast – along with the son he had with Luisa.
Piecing together the evidence, the pair head to Fisher’s childhood home – where they make an appalling discovery.
Struggling to come to terms with the distressing scene, the cops take a minute to compose themselves.
When their taxing and emotional day finally ends, Leon and Kirsty head to the pub together for a drink. Afterwards, as they wait for a cab, the pair kiss tenderly.
