They find that he has a bad leg and is confined to the shed, where at least he doesn't have to listen to his wife's snoring. Tearfully, Heptonstall tells them he wants to go to the churchyard and bury a very dear friend. They are scuppered, however, by a wedding in progress, and by PCs Cooper and Walsh.
