But while it might make the factory boss feel better to be away from the drama, her skipping town doesn’t do much to make anyone believe she is innocent… and if anything it just makes her look more guilty than ever.

As the family of the victim start to plan a funeral, they’re looking for someone to blame. And with Carla out of town, she soon becomes the prime suspect.

As the tragedy is investigated, it soon becomes public knowledge that there was an underlying fault with the factory roof… and soon the victim’s family are convinced that Ms Connor is the one with blood on her hands.

Always one to have her best friend’s back, Michelle stands up for Carla in her absence as everyone starts to point the finger of blame at the factory boss.

Michelle tells everyone that Carla couldn’t have known about the dodgy factory roof because she wouldn’t have put lives at risk… little does she know that Carla knew exactly what was wrong with the building’s structure.
