She had a kid.
Had it adopted, never told me.
Hi, Grace.
I think you're really lovely.
I wondered if you'd come out for a drink with me.
All right.
I want you to put a transfer request in for me.
You've been there, what, ten years? Twelve.
I need a change.
There's a vacancy opened up near Ongar.
Ongar! Just wanted to come in for a few minutes.
Get an idea of what life was like in the service.
Get off! Get off! Help! HELP! You left me.
You left me there.
You betrayed him.
I'm sorry, guv.
You're coming with me.
I want you where I can see you.
So, Ongar? Proper countryside? Trees.
Fields.
Cows.
So, yeah, proper.
For God's sake! How many years you known each other? 15? 20? Just grow up and work it out! For God's sake! Stupid bloody transfer, it's a joke.
Had your eyeful? No, sorry.
I was just Wondered if you fancied a game of chess? I should finish my book.
I've got a lecture tonight.
Oh.
I do evening classes.
English Lit.
Oh, yeah, well.
Education.
That's that's very important.
Oh, sod it! I'll tell them that a fireman ate my homework.
I just felt so, like, powerless.
Yeah.
Just put it behind you, eh? No, I know it's funny, but there were six of them, Snip, all holding us down.
He can't have come this far off the road.
He skidded there.
50 metres, I'd say.
Probably got a bit of spin on him as well.
Looks like we're getting warm.
Sorry, did you want the strawberry? I think I just had the last one.
My mum likes the orange ones best.
Darling, ask Trish what her favourites are.
It's OK.
No, come on Gracie, ask Trish.
Go on.
How are you getting on at school? I hate maths.
This is tunnel control.
Stay in your vehicles and await instructions.
Bloody pollen, man.
Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth.
Stop you sneezing.
See? Oh, bloody hell! Coffin must have smashed.
Great! We're looking for Humpty Dumpty.
Oh, my God! It smells! Mate, smell that! It smells! I love this game.
You're one move in and you already know how it's going to end.
It's your move.
Looking for Dennis Severs.
What have we got? He dropped a scratch card.
Said it had ten quid on it.
Yeah, I'll get the spreaders.
Kev, it's Billy.
You got a minute? Yeah, Billy.
What is it? The police are here asking for Asbo.
Yeah, he's with me.
Cavalry's here, don't worry.
What's your name? James.
Let me talk to them.
Apologise for wasting their time.
I was going to confess.
You don't get to decide how this ends.
This is tunnel control.
Stay in your vehicles and await instruction.
You all right, Gracie? What's happening? Don't worry, darling.
It'll just be someone that's broken down.
Nothing to get worked up about.
Maybe I should get counselling.
Six pissed women tried to pull your trousers down.
Get over it.
They touched my balls! They should get the fucking counselling, then.
What's up with you? Karen texted me on the way over.
She wants to go for a Chinese tonight.
Oh, shit, mate.
Yeah.
Are you sure she just doesn't want to go for a Chinese? No.
I'm not being funny.
But five kids, mate.
Don't, mate.
You're the most sorted person I know.
You're 29, you've got a pension.
You can do your own tax returns, you like olives.
How do you not I know.
I know! Do you think I don't I'm an idiot! Argh! Jesus Christ! Well done, Snip.
You found him.
You think we should say a few words or something? Nah, just get him in the bag.
What about his hand? I dunno.
Just stick it up his sleeve.
Oh, shit! Trish, are you Kev? Trish? .
.
a bad accident Trish? I don't I don't really know what to do.
Should we try and get out? Trish? Kev? I'm here with Rachel Blackwall Tunnel.
Trish? Kev? Come on, Snip.
Keep meaning to get that fixed.
It's temperamental.
Say that was a priority in your line of work, a lock that works.
Thing is, it's all right till you go round corners.
Oh, cheers, boys.
I've been looking everywhere for that! Little Al! Snip! We've got a shout! That's us.
See you soon! RTA.
Blackwall Tunnel, multiple vehicles.
Mile End! Incident at the Blackwall tunnel! Car versus tanker.
Please proceed, over.
Quick as you can, come on.
Come on, let's move.
Trish is in there.
HQ, access severely restricted from the north side, we're going to proceed on foot to assess the situation, over.
Mal, come with me.
Ziggy, Verb Let's go.
Dennis, stay with the pump.
I want you to access the south side.
We'll meet you there.
South side! Heading south side.

game where you had to make a sentence out of the letters on a registration plate.
And it had to make sense, you see.
And then we had to find that registration plate.
And his vision was excellent.
I mean, really exceptional.
Didn't you like me? How do you mean? I mean, how could I not like you? You gave me away.
Erm Grace, I Maybe Rachel, do you think this is the best time for this? If she's asked you the question it's because she wants to know.
It's hard to It's hard to explain.
I'm I'm not When it happened, I wasn't My life was a bit different.
And I wasn't sure I could be a good mummy to you.
Not as good as anybody else.
You're not as good as my mum.
Gracie! No, no.
It's fine.
Really.
Grace, you're right, darling.
I'm not.
Shall we play a game? Do you know any games, Trish? Gracie, you know some good ones, don't you? Command unit of radio relay at both south side and north side Where are they? Blackwall tunnel.
RTC.
It's funny how it's got all those bends in it, that tunnel.
Only goes under the river, you'd think they could just make it straight.
Nah, well, it was built when people still rode horse-drawn carriages.
See, a horse is a creature of the land.
Likes to see a bit of sky.
Being underground is not ideal for an equine.
He sees daylight, he's going to bolt for it, fast as he can.
And what have you got then? Chaos.
Pub quiz.
Sorry about your husband.
Yeah, well I loved him.
But he wasn't that clever.
And he wasn't that kind.
You haven't changed a bit, you know.
Windows closed, please.
Kev! You OK? It's all under control.
Just sit tight, yeah? This is Grace.
Hello, Grace.
I like your hoodie.
It's red.
It's my third favourite colour.
You must be the famous Kev? I'm Rachel Travers, Grace's mum.
Nice to meet you.
Listen, this is important.
Just stay in the car, keep your windows closed, yeah? OK.
Kev, listen He said shut the windows! That's Yep, thanks Grace.
You'll be OK.
Don't panic, just stay in the car.
Put your window up, please.

Windows please.
How are we doing? All right, love? Sir, are you OK? Yes? I'll be right with you.
We're here to help you, OK? Don't worry, I'm just going to lean across you.
Margarine.
Mile End, we've got an RTC involving a tanker of flammable food stuffs.
It appears to be contained at the moment.
There's nothing to worry about, OK.
Cut to the leg.
No arterial bleeding.
No real cabin intrusion.
Tunnel's blocked, approach south side.
Approaching the other side of the tanker now, guv.
We've got a female casualty in her 30s, breathing but only semi conscious.
Injuries do not appear to be severe.
Go and check that car for me, yeah? All right.
All right, mate? All right.
Hello? Hello? Can you hear me! Quick! How many? One.
Asbo? Asbo? Are you my knight in shining armour? Yeah, I'll try my best.
Guv, there are two.
We're going to cut them both out.
All right Ziggy, keep me posted.
I can't feel my feet.
Back in two seconds, all right? Oi, oi! Where's he run off to? I only asked him for his number, didn't ask him to have babies.
Not straightaway anyway.
Give him space, he'll come around.
Oh, I've already moved on now.
What's your name, slugger? Dom.
Dom, yeah? Are you clear? Yeah.
Clear! How does it look? We're going to get you out.
Not not me, love.
I meant out there? Is anybody hurt? Oi, Snip! First aid, now.
Just keep looking forward for me, all right? Just keep looking forward.
Grace doesn't like tunnels.
Neither of us do, actually.
Course.
Do you think maybe I should try to see what's happening about getting us moving? Kev said to stay in the car.
I think it's the best thing to do, Rachel.
Mal.
I spy with my little eye, something beginning with F.

They're firefighters, Bill.
Flammable material is the territory, you know? Listen, I think I might just go.
Don't go.
I mean You're a good distraction.
Bloody hell, Mince.
Is that the best you can do? It's hardly up there with "you complete me" is it, love? Eh? It's Big Al.
Isn't it? That's what you call him? I'm sure when I used to work here he was Little Al.
Yeah, well, he used to be able to fit through a cat-flap.
This is now a level three emergency, level three emergency.
Requesting four more pumps at the north entrance to stand by.

Not much of a mover? No, I've got two left feet.
We'll do everything we can so it doesn't come to that.
So, what d'you do for a living, then? I'm a PE teacher.
Last bit now, John.
Don't worry, mate.
C'mon, Snip.
