Ken fears that Nick Cavanagh borrowed in the paper's name leaving him practically responsible. Mike causes a stir by parking his Jaguar in the Street, letting everyone think he's driving whilst he's banned. Percy makes it his duty to spy on Mike and stop him driving whilst banned. Bob Statham flies in when he can't get hold of Nick and Ken breaks the news about his disappearance. Statham reveals Nick has never paid him the £40,000 for his 60% of the Recorder. Ken is delighted that as Nick never paid him, he therefore never owned the paper. Percy threatens to arrest Mike if he drives his car. He is annoyed when Mike introduces him to Denise, his driver. Ronnie Stubbs looks for wife Sandra at the Rovers. Bet refuses to tell him where she lives.
