Station Officer Jones was one of the team of firemen who dealt with the outbreak of fire in the Maisonettes in 1971 and attempted to rescue Valerie Barlow from the smoke and flames, not realising that she was already dead, electrocuted by a faulty plug in the accident that set off the fire in the first place.

The character's surname was given in dialogue as he reported into his station. He was also credited on Episode 1049 (3rd February 1971) even though he doesn't appear, along with Valerie Barlow, Peter Barlow, Susan Barlow, the Divisional Officer and Mr Weaver.
