Carl King is buried

What a week! First there was the drama of the weddings, then there was the drama of the births and now there's a drama unfolding in the wake of Carl King's death! The blackmailing, vengeful rich boy died at the hands of Cameron Murray, after Chas had initially flattened him with a brick when he attempted to rape her on his wedding night. Now the police have descended en masse to the village as the locals gather to bury him. With so many enemies, not least his warring brother Jimmy, how long will it be before the police identify the true murderer? And as Carl is laid to rest, who will step forward to say the eulogy?
