Ray soon finds out about this and sets to work bulldozing the plot that afternoon.
On the Street Abi, Kevin, Brian, Cathy, David, Ken, Rita and Shona watch with horror as the piece of heavy machinery heads towards the building.
Meanwhile, Ray stands on the other side, with a smug grin on his face.
In a last-ditch attempt to save the brewery, the residents park themselves in front of its doors and set up camp.
Rita leads them in a rousing rendition of ‘We shall not be Moved’.
After a night camping outside the brewery, the residents celebrate halting the progress of the bulldozer.
But their joy is short-lived when a massive long-arm digger turns up.

Despite her good intentions, Abi ends up losing control of the long arm and a nearby substation is smashed, knocking out all the power in the surrounding streets.
As the residents of Weatherfield go into a blind panic, Ray has another problem on his hands.
