Coronation Street Wiki

Joe was a locksmith who was employed by Alya Nazir to change the locks on 6 Coronation Street while her gran Yasmeen Metcalfe was in custody for stabbing her husband Geoff who was recovering in Weatherfield General. Knowing the Geoff had been subjecting his wife to months of systematic abuse, Alya was determined that he wouldn't gain access to the family home.

Joe was puzzled as to why Alya wanted the job done when the present mortice lock was in such good condition and she lied that she had lost her keys and there had been a spate of burglaries recently in the area. Joe continued with the work, warning her that it wouldn't be cheap but also promised her that the house would be like Fort Knox when he was finished.
