Inverness is the largest city in the Scottish Highlands and with a population of around 46,800.
Nessa Warner moved to Inverness with her boyfriend in May 2016. Later in the year her son Alex made the decision to go and live with his mother and planned to take the train, although Roy Cropper offered to drive him there. Along the way they broke down and telephoned Cathy Matthews. After being splashed by passing traffic the phone cut out and Cathy feared they had been killed by an explosion from the damaged car. Cathy's fears were put to rest when Kevin Webster managed to make contact with them. Cathy went to their location in Kevin's tow truck, located them and drove them back to Weatherfield.
