Plot

Curly refuses to mention Raquel by name to Eric. He feels that she shouldn't have to go through it all. Reg is furious as she's his only way of getting to Leo. The brewery phones Vera and Liz and tell them the race is on for the Rovers. Reg calls Eric in to lodge a complaint against Leo but backs out when none of the girls are willing to make statements. Curly tells Eric that Leo has been sexually harassing the staff. Reg tries to back out of the situation but Eric hears Curly out. Jim is out chauffeuring Mike when Liz phones to say they are needed at the brewery immediately if they want the pub but the bank needs his signature for the loan. When Eric hears that Curly thumped Leo, he knows that Leo was guilty as he never reported the fight. Reg is amazed when Eric explains that Leo has a history of sexual harassment. He praises Curly for not revealing the ladies' names. Mike is furious to find that Jim has disappeared with his car. Jim rushes back in the car to go to the bank with Liz but they discover they are too late - the Duckworths have beaten them to it. Mike tells Jim he's fired. Raquel is thrilled that Curly kept her name out of the report and that action will be taken. Jack and Vera are shell-shocked when the brewery tells them that the Rovers is theirs.
