Last year, Neil Clifton's daughter Kayla began working at Speed Daal in order to get closer to Bethany.

Neil was a friend of Nathan Curtis, who groomed Bethany and had his friends sleep with her for money. He was also a policeman who worked with Craig.

The corrupt police officer went to jail for his crimes, but his daughter believed he was innocent. Kayla used Craig in order to get information on Bethany.
Kayla was devastated when Craig played her a recording of Neil confessing and disowned her father before leaving.
