Further details

The unthinkable has happened... the Department of Work and Pensions has finally caught up with job dodger Frank. A nightmare fantasy emerges of Frank on death row with the Chatsworth characters appearing as cell mates, prison governor, guards and last supper servers. Frank is a 'dead man walking' to... a job!

Shane and Jackson launch a new enterprise of bootleg booze, but it's rank and nobody is buying their stuff.

With Chatsworth wild on the mix, Shane is seriously hacked off. It's time to lay down the law.

Meanwhile, Avril supplies pills to Patty, who wants more than her recommended dosage, but when Avril turns down her request, Patty springs to action plotting to steal a pack with Aidan's help.
