Kingsdown Close: Bringing Angela In; Chasing Linbert
Jack and George have discovered that Angela was one of the last people to see Andy before he was being questioned at the station, and where he collapsed. She is brought in for questioning to try to ascertain the timeline of what happened to Andy before his arrest. It transpires that Linbert Rea, an ex of Angela’s, is something of the jealous type and not at all well disposed towards her new beau. It was actually Linbert who dished out the beating on Andy that caused his severe injuries – those for which Phil Deacon blames Regan, and has thus put out a hit on him.
