Frank Holmes along with Jim Pitts were a pair of con-men who in July 1976 pretended to be from the Welfare and tried to sell Ena Sharples a shower for £60. When Frank told Ena he'd sold a shower to Hetty Boothroyd, she stated she would have the deposit of £20 for him.
However, Ena had her suspicions about Holmes and told Len Fairclough and Eddie Yeats about him and how she'd realised he was a con-man as Hetty Boothroyd had actually died five months prior. Len and Eddie hid whilst Ena conversed with Holmes and the pair subsequently prevented him from leaving. Eddie almost strangled Holmes and Len took him to the police station.
