Storyline

A male social worker answering a domestic disturbance call is viciously assaulted by the drunken bully suspect, who continues his unruly behaviour towards his partner's hungry young boy after he calls out for food one too many times. A pick-pocket prisoner (Kenneth Cope) also attends the casualty department under police guard with a suspected heart attack, but the staff are unconvinced it is genuine; and an elderly woman suffering from a gangrenous foot is admitted to the hospital by her son who insists she receives private care. Written by Lord Heath (lordheath1972@yahoo.co.uk)
