No Offence: series three episode three: election fright

In her quest for the mole, or rat, or whatever it is, within Albion Faye Caddy corners Miller in a cafe, disturbing his much valued potato wedgie time. A picture of his daughter Lena is put up to the window and a car speeds away. Fat girls can't be kidnapped but ones related to the police obviously can. It turns out to be an idle threat but the stakes between the force and Albion have been raised.
