A gang of weapon-wielding motorbike thieves get more than they bargained for when a group of shop owners band together to stop the theft of £50,000 worth of motorcycles.
Adrian plays a trick on Julia to test how good a witness she might be. As she reads a presenter link, an apparent robber - in fact an actor - snatches a bag off a woman right in front of Julia's nose. So what will Julia remember when the police come calling? We reveal the tricks the mind can play when trying to remember a face.
Two pensioners with a combined age of 141 take on the same gang of jewellery thieves. We show the amazing footage of Ann Timson sprinting down the street and letting loose on the robbers with her handbag. Then three weeks later the very same gang encounter 70-year-old retired sales manager Michael Graver, who also slows down the gang as they attempt another raid. Their actions helped get 10 members of the gang jailed for more than 60 years.
Our first celebrity Fightback story features Shane Lynch, formerly of Boyzone, and his stolen Subaru racing car. Shane has given up a life of crooning to become a racing driver with Japspeed. All was going well, until last year thieves broke into the garage of his racing team and stole Shane's custom-made racing car before driving off down the motorway. Determined to get the car back, Shane and the team launched a Facebook appeal for sightings. The online racing community sprang into action, and soon there were sightings coming in thick and fast. One race fan even posted up video of the car speeding down the mortorway. The net was closing in on the thieves. We find out what happened when it began to dawn on the robbers that they may have a car that was just too hot to handle.
