Confusion reigns at Police HQ as officers and the accused alike remain unsure whether the Operation Yewtree accusations and charges are to be applied to Ken Barlow or Bill Roach.
“We’re not entirely sure where Ken stops and Bill begins” Said one senior officer.
The PCC is on standby to adjudicate but admits itself that it is unsure whether it’s remit covers Officers at the Weatherfield Police Station.
Prosecutors have muddied the water further by accepting Deidre Barlow as a character witness.
Max Clifford, who transcends the fictional boundaries of Granada Television, having been referred to in 9 episodes of Corrie, is to represent Barlow in Weatherfield, since the charges brought against him in the non-fictional location ‘London’, do not apply to his complicated, but yet unrelated persona which exists in the make-believe world of Coronation Street.
