After Kevin left the shop he went and crossed the road before a massive gas explosion ripped open The Joinery Bar (now known as the Bistro) in the viaduct.

Molly left the shop with baby Jack to see what happened and was horrified to see a tram coming along the track about to derail.

As it derailed, Molly ran back into the shop with her son and the tram came crashing into the building.

Molly and Jack were caught in the rubble. Emergency services got the baby to hospital but they needed special equipment to move Molly.

She was bleeding heavily and Sally was allowed in to be with her. Molly told Sally as she was dying Jack needed his father and confessed Kevin was Jack’s dad.
