Len employs Bert as paper boy whilst the strike is on. Hilda puts her washing in a black bag. She is horrified to discover that Eddie has taken it to the tip instead of the rubbish, also in a bin bag. Deirdre is furious that Mike dumped her but is pleased she spent the evening with Ken. Ivy is furious to find the regulars joking about Bert having a paper round. Mike plans an evening out with Deirdre. Richard Dickinson asks Bert to stop his paper round as he's strike breaking - Bert agrees. Deirdre refuses to go out with Mike telling him that he's a rat and she's not going out with him again. Eddie confirms he threw out the bin bag from the kitchen. Hilda tells him that it contained all of their laundry. Eddie tells her that the bag will be on the tip until the morning. Hilda swears they'll try to salvage it.
