The firemen arrive to try to save Val. They have to drag Ken back from No.14. Val is rushed to the Infirmary but is dead on arrival - electrocuted by the faulty plug, as Len later relates to the residents. Ken breaks the news of Val's death to a devastated Albert. Lucille and Ray take Peter and Susan to Glasgow. No one knows how to help Ken. Mr Weaver of the Council tells Len that they have decided to demolish the maisonettes as the fire has exposed structural faults.
