Under Duress is the 1401st episode of The Bill.
D.S. Boulton and D.C. Rawton are called to investigate a house fire, and when they arrive at the scene, discover that the property in question was being used as a brothel, and that the girls were being kept prisoner by their pimp. As Boulton goes in search of missing prostitute Mya, Rawton follows other lines of enquiry, investigating a Mr. Ursin, whose telephone number is the one given to call to obtain an appointment with one of the girls. As Boulton catches up with Mya, Rawton gets close to Ursin, but her search of the torched building leads her to discover a number of illegal passports, and it's not long before Ursin comes looking for them. Rawton finds herself in grave danger. Will she make it out alive?
