Emily goes to Wakefield for a rest, after sending the wedding presents back. Three riggers, Duffer, Dan and Joss, descend on the Street trying to make trouble. When they insult Ena, Len stands up for her. They challenge him and two mates to a fight that evening. Harry can't help Len as he has to arrange for the family to go to Ireland again. Annie removes her miniatures from display, anticipating the fight. Charlie, Ken and Gus back out of helping Len. He refuses not to fight and faces the riggers alone. Annie dials 999.
