On his return to the Square, Mick wastes no time in catching up with The Vic's paperwork

Pub landlord Mick is furious when he discovers his mum forged his signature while he was away...

Mick Carter breezed back into the Square recently completely oblivious to the fact his mum Shirley has raised much- needed cash for the family by selling The Vic's freehold. And she did it by forging Mick's signature. It was only a matter of time before the landlord discovered Shirley's fraudulent action, and when he does, he predictably hits the roof. But could a meeting with Fi Browning – who's now overseeing The Vic's affairs – provide Mick with a way of staying in control of his beloved Vic?
