A schoolgirl is found dead from a drugs overdose. The second in a few weeks. DCI Jack Harris suspects there is more to the tragedy.

The small Pennine town of Levton Bridge is up in arms. The locals are campaigning for a young offender centre to be closed down. The death of the girls fuels their anger.
