A local cop takes on a well-known resident and her housemate who’s heading to jail for the first time.
In the first episode, sergeant Terry takes on a new role to target offenders in the remote village of Horden. Top of his list is 26 year-old Shauna, whose house in the numbered streets is regularly frequented by some of the areas well-known criminals. Terry likes Shauna but the feeling isn’t always mutual. As Shauna says, “the police have a vendetta against people in Horden, I think - especially me”.
Soon after Terry meets Shauna for the first time, two lads are locked up for a spate of early morning burglaries. One of them is 18 year-old Jacob, who is currently living at Shauna’s. He goes to prison for the first time for the burglaries and when he’s released he faces a decision: go and live in Shauna’s notorious party house or move back in with his mum away from Horden.
Meanwhile, a masked man steals over three thousand pounds in an armed robbery at a bookies on the numbered streets. As the police piece together the evidence it becomes clear that their prime suspect is a local lad who has spent most of his adult life behind bars for violent offences.
