Len thinks working in The Kabin is easy. Rita challenges him to swap jobs and he agrees. As a result, Martin finds it hard working for Rita, and Mavis doesn't enjoy sharing the shop with Len. Bet phones the Gazette and tells them about the rubbish row. Sandy Lester, a reporter, investigates the bin story. The residents complain to them about the smell. Photographer Tony Watkins takes a fancy to Bet and takes her photograph sitting on the dustbins. Mavis has to run The Kabin as Len spends his time in the Rovers. She threatens to resign if he doesn't pull his weight in future.
