Whilst enjoying each others company, Sergeant Dale Smith and trainee DC Kezia Walker visit nurse Beth Adams in St Hugh’s who called to say she has seen Keith Durante around the hospital. Beth tells them she has seen him over the last couple of weeks in various corridors and the cafeteria. She wasn’t sure it was him at first but once hearing Kezia’s message, decided to give her a call. Kezia talks to DI Neil Manson who is fed up of telling her that she needs to obtain evidence to prove whether his being around the hospital is deliberate or accidental. Smithy and Kezia are thrilled when they later find evidence Durante’s movements on CCTV corresponding with Beth’s statement.
Neil decides to question Durante alone, realising he can only charge him with harassment as his wife has already given alibis to clear him of rape. Durante tells Neil he had consensual sexual intercourse with Beth and admits he has been following her as he wanted to explain how he feels after their ‘special night’ together. Durante is given a caution, leaving a fuming Kezia to visit Beth at home to deliver the bad news. She is gob-smacked when Durante calls Beth and, unable to intervene, Beth gives him her address inviting him round – wanting to take law into her own hands. Kezia calls for urgent back-up and both girls wait for Durante to appear. Has the suspected rapist been given the opportunity he’s been looking for?
