Ken aidan

Ken loses it with Aidan

28th October 2002: After weeks of being goaded by pupil Aidan Critchley, teacher Ken Barlow punched the boy. Ken had recently returned to teaching at 63 but Aidan had been a continual disruption, stretching Ken's patience to its limits. Ken's trouble with Aidan were exacerbated when Aidan, joyriding in Ken's car with Sarah Platt, crashed the car and fled the scene, leaving Sarah inside. Ken felt guilty for not reporting it but believed his trouble to be over when Aidan was arrested but without evidence he was released and returned to school, where he resumed provoking Ken, leading to Ken finally snapping. The incident ended Ken's teaching career as he resigned before his hearing and in court he was given a conditional discharge.

Mark Casey in 1989

Mark Casey was a young mechanic who worked under Kevin Webster at his father Tom's garage from 1989 to 1990. For his 21st birthday, Mark was given the garage, and in 1991 he sacked Kevin for doing foreigners. Without Kevin to keep him right, the inexperienced businessman ran the garage into the ground within a year. Mark was born on 15th October 1969. He was the only child of Tom and Jean Casey, businesspeople and owners of Casey's Autos in Weatherfield. At Weatherfield High, he was always getting into trouble, and once took the wheels off his teacher's car as a prank. At 19, Mark's two main passions were cars and women. He had two years experience working in garages and was a skilled mechanic but lacked discipline. When Tom bought Tilsley's Garage in Albert Road which was managed by the late Brian Tilsley's hired hand, Kevin Webster, he sent Mark to work there under Kevin, hoping that it would be an education for his son.
