Amy Burton is nagging Jack about having pigeons in the house. Because Mike's phone has been off the hook, Emily and Ivy call round to sort out some business. Susan phones to say that she needs a folder from the flat - Ken insists on going to get it. Vera tells Amy not to leave her bag around when Jack's about. Ken and Mike have an argument over Susan. While Hilda and Mrs Lowther are packing, they are viciously attacked by burglars. Hilda is knocked to the floor - her head badly cut.
