After spotting Claire in a dressing gown, Norris excitedly tells Rita that Claire has obviously spent the night at Ashley's house. Peter has spent a restless night and a supportive Ken agrees to accompany him to the police station to hear the CPS's verdict. Shelley agrees with Sunita and Bev that she wants Peter punished, but says she doesn't feel as strongly as Lucy does. Ciaran notes her discomfort. Tracy comes on to a disinterested Steve. Fred returns from Scotland and is quickly filled in on the gossip by Norris. He's pleased at the thought of Ashley and Claire together, but later realises that nothing has gone on. Maya is proving elusive and is giving Dev the run-around. Les and Lulu arrange another early evening rendezvous. In a panic to get back before his 7.00pm curfew, and unable to explain his hurry to Lulu, he leaves a trainer behind. His feet are ruined after walking home in his socks, but he's officially in love. Katy and Angela eat at the flat, where they enjoy each other's company. Lucy comes to the Rovers, excited at the prospect of hearing the CPS's verdict. Peter comes in to tell Shelley that the CPS is not going to prosecute because the offence was short-lived. Lucy is aghast to hear that he's going to get away with a caution. She can't believe that they let him off, especially after Shelley's statement.
