The Street is still closed off as something in the warehouse let off gas when it burned. Ray invites Ken and Len to stay at Blanche's. Hilda hears their conversation and she, Stan, Ena, Minnie, Tricia and Gail descend on the Langtons. Deirdre refuses to let anyone in the flat so everyone else battles for space downstairs. Emily is upset that no one is using the facilities at Bessie Street School. Hilda thinks Tricia and Gail are gossiping about her when they talk about the street being fumigated before realising her mistake and saying that the Corner Shop was fumigated. Bet turns up at Blanche's to get the refugees in a party mood but everyone is worn out. The fire reminds Ken of Val's death. Tricia and Gail worm their way into the Langtons' flat. In the morning, Minnie goes looking for missing Bobby. Ginny Spencer allows credit at the New Old Inn as the residents are refused entrance to the Street. Ray gives Deirdre the afternoon off to make it up to her. Tricia and Gail realise they won't get redundancy money. PC Lyle tells Len that the Rovers' cellar is flooded and the fire brigade are going to pump it out. Annie is horrified when he passes the news onto her.
