Weatherfield council worker Jack arrived in Coronation Street in April 1973 to fumigate No. 13 after mice and cockroaches were discovered. Stan Ogden had allowed the house to become a tip when Hilda was away for several weeks at her brother Archie’s and the problem became so bad for the adjoining Corner Shop and No. 11 that Elsie Howard was forced to call in the health inspectors who in turn called in the fumigators.
A softer man than his older colleague Arthur, Jack knocked on the skirting boards before they began and enquired of the mice if they had any last requests. At the end of their task, Jack had saved one of the mice and was taking it home as a pet, he and his lads being fond of the creatures.
