The bulldozers move in and start to demolish the factory and the Community Centre. Kevin and Sally don't like Elsie Seddon living with them as she keeps hinting about babies. Gail surprises Audrey and Ivy by cornering them and telling them her affair with Martin is nothing to do with either of them. Gail accuses Ivy of blaming her for Brian's death. Ivy thinks her carrying on will have a bad effect on the children. Jenny makes arrangements to go to Manchester Polytechnic rather than Brighton as she feels Rita needs her. Percy is sad to see the Centre flattened. Elsie tells the Websters she's returning to Scarborough. Ivy belts Martin round the head in the Rovers. The police tell Rita that Alan's trial is coming up.
