A misunderstanding lands Abi in trouble
After Mr Fitzgerald from the local school drops off the school minibus with Abi at the garage, she is shocked to find a bag of drugs in the glove box. Mr Fitzgerald returns, claiming he left his wallet in the minibus, but Abi has already called the police. Tyrone gets the wrong end of the stick as the police search for drugs, and Steve tells Eileen about the situation.
