There’s an upbeat atmosphere in the air as Catherine and Kirsten share a joke over the radio while the latter is navigating a quiet country lane on police patrol. Neither of them could have imagined the events about to take place, bringing both their worlds crashing down.

A white transit van whizzes past Kirsten, immediately putting her on high alert. She pulls the van over and approaches the young man driving. A panicked Lewis looks instantly suspicious and when she hears muffled sounds coming from inside the van she orders him to open the door.

Parked several metres away, Tommy has witnessed the confrontation from Ann’s Mini and when Kirsten’s back is turned, calmly and calculating he reverses, knocking her to the ground. Stunned, Kirsten reaches for her radio and alerts Catherine, but will she be able to get there in time before Tommy finishes her off?

Fleeing from the scene, Lewis and Tommy hide Ann in an unused caravan at the farm to get her out of sight. Later, Kevin pulls up to see Ashley, pleading with him to keep Ann safe. When Lewis tells him that Tommy brutally ran over a policewoman, he fears things are spiralling out of control. Little does he know that Ann isn’t far away...

Catherine can’t shake the feeling that Tommy is near and returns to the deserted house to take another look. Against police protocol, she breaks in and instantly realises something sinister has happened when she spots a chair with gaffer tape, blood splattered walls and discarded knickers on the floor. But nothing’s been reported, so who is the victim of this disturbing scene?
