The Squad is the 1508th episode of The Bill.
PC Tony Stamp has been brought in as a driver for the Flying Squad, ahead of a jealous Vicky Hagen. They're shadowing a suspect called Barwood, who has just gone into a bank with someone. The person is a keyholder so it must be a manager. The Squad trace the manager's address and send someone round to see if his family is being held hostage. Someone in the bank triggers the alarm and uniform arrive, scaring off the getaway car. Despite Stamp's best efforts, they lose the getaway car and the car with the hostage family. Barwood demands to be set free or the family get it. After standing by, a child escapes, and as the gunman chase him, the perfect opportunity is given for SO19 to move in.
