Its PC Jim Carver’s first day at Sun Hill Police Station, he is partnered with WPC June Ackland. The day is an eventful one; the pair’s first assignment together leads them to discovering a decomposing woman’s body in her bath. Later whilst on patrol Jim encounters a rude youngster (Gary Hailes) and influenced by comments made by older officers at the station decides to clip him round the ear. This action results in him receiving a reprimand at the station from Sergeant Wilding. Fortunately for Carver, the boy’s father approves of his son’s treatment, and thus no further action is taken.
