Storyline

Harold and Albert are offered lead by Welsh Hughie a dodgy sort of character who claims to have got it legitimately from a local church. Albert is suspicious but they decide to buy the lead anyway for 10 quid as it would fetch 50 quid on the market. When a policeman comes round searching for lead, the Steptoes decide to dump the lead in the river but little did they know the lead came from their own roof in the first place. Written by Anonymous
