Laura Collins was a machinist at Ingram's Textiles. Along with Ivy Brennan, Laura was told by work's manager Mike Baldwin that Peter Ingram had had a heart attack and that he was now in intensive care. Laura scoffed at Mike's assertion that he did everything he could for Peter, wondering if it was a kiss of life job. Laura was also present in the factory when Ralph Dobson announced that Peter had died in hospital.
