When Gail Hillman had to break the bad news to Richard Hillman's investors that they had lost all of their money in his crooked deals, Vera Duckworth took out her temper over her £20,000 loss by throwing a brick through the living room window of 8 Coronation Street. Rod Franks was the glazier who repaired the window, offering his advice to Gail that she should inform the police of the incident but, not wanting to make a bad matter worse, she refused.
