Linda gets Mark to stand Leanne up and take her out clubbing. Sarah realises how lucky she is when she hears of baby Jake's death. Distraught Kevin turns to Sally for comfort over Jake's death whilst Alison tries to help Sarah who is exhausted with looking after her baby. Mark and Linda panic when Geena spies them kissing at the club. Linda tells her that she's trapped as she loves both Mark and Mike and begs her not to tell anyone. When Sarah falls asleep, Alison snatches the baby and runs out of the hospital. Kevin and the Platts are sent for. Kevin struggles to understand how Alison could have been left unattended whilst Martin refuses to have the situation covered up. The police are called in and radio broadcasts alert Weatherfield to the missing baby. Audrey is hurt when she hears the news over the radio and rows with Gail for not telling her in person. Sarah is upset by the rows and breaks down. Out walking Monica, Tyrone sees Alison on the Red Rec. He tells Kevin who rushes there with the police. Linda pushes Mark into finishing with Leanne. She is sad to be dumped by him again. Kevin finds Alison and the baby outside a pram shop. He talks the police into letting him talk to her alone. She tells him how she can't face not having a baby as she knows she would make a great mother. She hands the baby to him and before anyone can stop her she runs in front of a lorry and is killed.
