[Radio Announcer] It's

also extremely grim out there

so please do take care on

the roads this evening.

Gale force winds are forecast

throughout the rest of the night

and severe weather

warnings remain in place

across The Southwest

and surrounding areas.

It's really not very

pleasant at all.

Stay with us for updates

on the weather situation

every 15 minutes.

And the headlines once

again for The Southwest.

The search continues

for a missing patient

who escaped from the Seaview

secure unit earlier today.

The resident, who

should not be approached

is described as being -

(door knocks)

[Man] Hello,

can you let me in?

No, go away!

[Man] Please, I need help!

Well, who are you?

[Man] I'm hurt, please!

Can I just use your phone or

anything, just for a minute.


(bolt opens)

What do you want?

Do you know what time

it is, for God sake,

what are you doing here?

[Man] Please, let me in.

I fell, I think

I've busted my arm.


Okay, well hurry before

we both freeze to death.

(door clacking shut)

Here, put that down.

Sit down there.

You're freezing, you poor thing.

I'm sorry there's no electric.

The lights went out

with the storm earlier.

And they've been flickering

on and off for ages

but I think they finally

given up the ghost.

Oh, I don't mind.

It's better than

being out there.

What the devil are you doing

out in a night like this?

You're lucky you didn't

catch your death.

Thanks for opening the door.

It's fucking freezing out there.

Yeah, precisely.

I'll find you another blanket.


It's fine, it's

all fine, I'm fine.

Found a towel, this

will do won't it?

(eerie music)

Do I know you?


What have you done to yourself?

Let me see.

Don't be a baby, I

used to be a nurse.

Well, I wanted to be.

I helped the nurses.

Anyway, let me see.

Well, do you think it's broken?

When you fell did you feel

it break or hear it snap?

F*ck knows.

I heard something but

it could have been

the bits of wood

or twigs I fell on.

I really need to.





Hmm, can you move it

at all, your fingers?

I don't think you'd be

able to move your fingers

if it was broken.

I remember when my

little boy broke his arm.

And I think you'd be

in a lot more pain.

More pain?

It hurts like a bastard already.

How did you fall?

I was running

and, I don't know,

I tripped over a

fucking tree stump

and bam down I fucking went.

Look, I know you're in pain

but I really would appreciate it

if you wouldn't

swear quite so much.

My husband always

swore and I hated it.

I'm sure it's not

that necessary.

But it hurts like...



A lot.

There, that's better.

Let's start again.

So we're looking at

just about the elbow.

I think you need to take the

weight off it for a start.

There's a scarf I saw somewhere,

can use it as a sling.


Sorry, can't see

a flaming thing.

(eerie piano music)


[Man] Hello?


Why are you shouting?

I'm just here.

Found a scarf.

Now, let's pop this off.

Right, just lift your

arm up a little bit.

Pop this through there.

That's it.


Put on our clothes

Put on our clothes


So early in the morning


There, how's that, better?

Yeah, much better, thanks.


Told you I used to be a nurse.


I would phone for a doctor but
