Justin’s found out Duncan’s left Berrow. Hannah explains he didn’t take to the new weekend shift pattern, and she tore him off a strip, so he quit.

Buoyed up, she makes another suggestion to improve efficiency in Neil’s absence, and Justin approves it. Later on in the pub her cheery mood continues as she gets an invitation to a date with a new man.
