Stan gets bored being laid up all day. Ken assigns Sally Waterman to cover Stan's toe story. She is thrilled as it's her first article. Hilda has her photograph taken, measuring the flagstone. Fred gives Jack his spare ignition key and reports the Rover as stolen. When the Rover runs out of petrol, Jack has to abandon it. He returns to top it up and is stopped by the Police. Sally interviews the Ogdens; Stan lays it on a bit thick. Fred is furious to hear that Jack has been caught with the Rover. Fred is forced to tell the Police he allowed Jack to borrow it. The Police aren't pleased. Brian tells Ivy that he doesn't like her seeing Arthur Whittaker. She is furious. Jack spends three hours in the police station. He goes for Fred who considers raffling the Rover.
