Mr Worsley turned up at 13 Coronation Street in April 1973 when Elsie Howard and Norma Ford reported the house to the health inspectors. 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 and Norma had to take matters into their own hands.
At first, Stan wouldn't let Worsley into the house which he denied was infested with vermin, but Worsley merely barged past him as it was his duty to investigate. In his report to the Town Hall, Worsley listed mice and cockroaches in the house and arranged for it to be fumigated the next day. Stan's worry now was that Hilda would be back by then!
