P.C. Wilkinson was a uniformed policeman who was on patrol when Bernard Butler, dressed as a nurse, wheeled Ray Langton in a wheelchair across streets of Weatherfield for a laugh. Wilkinson thought he was a real (female) nurse and tried to get his help for a woman who had collapsed. When he saw that he was in drag, he took Bernard's name and escorted them to the police station. No charges were pressed but the incident gave the officers at the station, including Cyril Turpin, something to laugh about.
