Zoe is frightened of the police and edges nearer the canal to get away. Ashley persaudes her to put Morgan down but when the police try to touch her she climbs a bridge. She jumps into the canal and goes under. Gary and Nick dive in after her as she can't swim and they drag her to safety. Ashley is unable to move. Zoe and Morgan are taken to hospital. Fiona rushes to be with her baby, shrugging off Maxine's plea to go with her. Ashley shouts at Zoe, trying to understand why she stole Morgan but she refuses to talk to him. Morgan is cleared by the doctors and reunited with Fiona. Dr Andrea Cannon sections Zoe, believing her to be a menace to society. Ashley begs them not to but they insist she must be locked up. He pleads with Fiona not to press charges but she tells him no baby is safe around Zoe. He discovers that Zoe's going to appear in court and be remanded into psychiatric care for reports. Liz is delighted when Jim comes round from the coma.
