Storyline

In hospital for the removal of varicose veins Hetty sees DCI Adams,who has a prisoner under escort in a private ward and who warns her that several patients have been burgled whilst away from their homes. When young nurse Deborah Woolmar trumps up a sexual assault charge against Adams Hetty realises that this is an attempt to discredit him as the ward sister is rather too friendly with the convict - who just happens to be the brother of a pair of smugglers who are also robbing the houses.
