PCs Will Fletcher, Dan Casper, Honey Harman, Emma Hinckley and husband, CPS lawyer, Matt Hinckley are out together clubbing. After getting into an argument with a man called Leon Davis, they decide to call it a night – it’s 5.30am. Outside the club, Dan is surprised to see Will arresting Davis – Will explains that Davis assaulted him after he stepped in when he saw him harassing a woman. Davis denies Will’s version of events saying that Will had it in for him and knocked him to the ground. Dan takes details from a couple of onlookers and PCs Tony Stamp and Diane Noble arrive to take Davis to the station. Tony and Diane go home after working through the night and pass the baton to PC Roger Valentine who is back at work after suffering post traumatic stress disorder, and Emma who take over the investigation. Roger and Emma question Will on what happened and he tells them that Davis’ girlfriend, Mandy Francis, witnessed everything. Unfortunately, Mandy corroborates her boyfriend’s story and tells Roger that Will started the fight and there was no stopping him.
After checking Mandy’s details on the system, Roger is interested to see that she has been in and out of prison for dealing drugs. The officers check CCTV footage to see if they can catch Mandy doing anything untoward as a means of getting her to tell the truth about her boyfriend. They are intrigued to see her kissing a man called Thomas Fairbank on the video and on discovering he holds the keys and codes to a local jewellery store, they conclude that Mandy and Davis have a job planned. Roger and Emma visit Thomas to find him gagged and tied to his bed and call DS Phil Hunter and Terry Perkins who have been in on the investigation to the jewellery shop. The detectives catch Davis and Mandy in the middle of their robbery and both are arrested. Back at Sun Hill, Terry and Phil question Davis about what really happened with Will outside the club. To their dismay, Davis sticks to his story and says if he is going down, he is taking Will with him…
