Two police officers have turned up and want to speak to Alfie; it’s the moment he’s been dreading. Mick sees Alfie with the police and confronts Tosh, knowing it was her who ruffled feathers. Tina is appalled that Tosh grassed Alfie up; aren’t his family going through a hard enough time already? Mo visits Kat in hospital and tells her that Alfie has been with the police. Stacey waits outside the police station for Alfie who tries to convince her not to worry – it was just a few routine questions. When Stacey presses further, Alfie confesses that Tosh made a statement to the police about him, hence the questioning.
Alfie and Stacey arrive at the hospital and inform Kat and Mo that it was down to Tosh’s statement that the police got involved.
