Tamwar Masood (Himesh Patel) becomes the victim of a gang attack in scenes set to air this coming Monday. The assistant market inspector set upon by the thugs who take the money belt containing pitch money from the stalls. Viewers will subsequently see that Liam Butcher (James Forde) has earned himself a cut of the cash due to his growing involvement with the yobs who are currently menacing the area.
The attack comes following an incident earlier in the day when Tamwar displays new-found bravery as he stands up to the gang members who are misbehaving in the market. But the reprisal that follows will shake Tam’s confidence, especially when he’s then forced to wear a stab-proof vest at work.
The attack on Tamwar forms part of the build-up to this year’s Comic Relief special episode (Friday 15 March) that will see Liam’s mum Bianca (Patsy Palmer) attempt to sever her son’s ties with gang leader Kane and his followers.
